The popular Yuwinj-Dhari Bulwal - Yuin Country Explored documentary was released on Youtube this week for all to watch.

The visually stunning film presents some of the important stories surrounding Captain Cook's arrival in the HMB Endeavour along the NSW South Coast and the past and present consequences for local Aboriginal people.

In the past 12 months, Eurobodalla Council held a number of free screenings for the film and council's arts coordinator Indi Carmichael was excited to now open it up to the world.

"Stories from our region are mentioned in Cook's diary entries and they remain embedded in our local Aboriginal culture," Ms Carmichael said.

"Yuwinj-Dhari Bulwal tells region's history from a First Nation's perspective, but it also celebrates the spirit, resilience, culture and strength of the Yuin Nation people."

Yuwinj-Dhari Bulwal - Yuin Country Explored was a collaboration between the National Museum of Australia and Eurobodalla Council through the Cultural Connections Initiative.

It was the culmination of a year-long project that aimed to support Eurobodalla's Aboriginal and Torres Strait community to respond to the 250th anniversary of Cook's voyage along Australia's east coast.

The project was originally designed as a series of outdoor exhibitions and events, but due to COVID-19 last year it was adapted to create the short film featuring Yuin dance, stories and artwork.

Watch it now on Youtube.
