Mark Koolmatrie is the original Tribal man of southern South Australia, also referred to as a ‘Munkanboli’, a clever person who is a man of wisdom and knowledge.
Mark has used his knowledge that has been passed down by his ancestors over thousands and of years to ensure culture is strong and alive. Mark’s origin is from the Kukabrak Tribes of southern South Australia and like many changes they are now referred to as Ngarrindjeri. The Ngarrindjeri Nation is made up of 18 Tribes or family groupings known as Lakinyeri.
Mark’s family is of the Ramindjeri, Yaralde, Meintangk, Warki and Tangani Kukabrak tribes. He speaks for and belongs to other families of the Coorong region, the lower lakes of southern South Australia, the Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island and all their lands, waters and cosmology.
