Ngain-ya-ye-ya cooling – watch out Boss Ladies, the Wagyl swims in murky waters

THREE Toodyay Boss Ladies, as the local Noongar Kaartdijin Aboriginal Corporation likes to call them, celebrated Reconciliation Week (May 27-June 3) by launching a new display at Duidgee Park.

The sign is one of nine on a Noongar Trail to show the connection of Yued, Ballardong and Whadjuk people to the Toodyay area.

The display describes how the Wagyl Spirit Snake swims in dark and murky waters, and visitors should call out ngain-ya-ye-ya cooling to say they are coming.
