Dja Dja Wurrung

Dja Dja Wurrung people are Traditional Owners of Country across Central Victoria and our ancestors have cared for it over countless generations.

The Traditional Owners of this country are sometimes called Dja Dja Wurrung people and sometimes called Jaara meaning people in their language. Both names are correct. It is believed that 'Dja Dja Wurrung' is the name of the language and 'Jaara' is the language name for the people.
