Tiati Wangkanthi Kumangka (Truth-Telling Together)

Galleries, Museums and Collections

Tiati Wangkanthi Kumangka is a permanent exhibition at the Bay Discovery Centre, situated in the Glenelg Town Hall, Moseley Square. The exhibition was curated together with the Kaurna Nation and explores the true history of South Australia, opening up an honest discussion about South Australia’s colonisation.

The exhibition is about truth-telling that challenges some of South Australia’s history books, won the Australian museum sector’s most prestigious award in the Museum and Galleries National Awards MAGNA for 2020, and is a must see to learn about the settlement of South Australia in parallel with the historical experiences of Aboriginal people.

A copy of South Australia’s founding document, the rarely–seen Letters Patent, which dates back to 1836, is on public display. The invaluable piece of South Australia’s history is a key element of the exhibition which examines the words of the Letters Patent, which include recognition of “Aboriginal Natives” to occupy and live within the lands of the Province of South Australia.
