Todd Mall

Come join in the festival ambience created throughout Todd Mall festooned with lanterns through the trees and a kaleidoscope of lights painting the pathways in the evening. The beautiful Grandfather Tree at the crossroads of the Mall will be theatrically lit and accompanied by an audio recording by Traditional Owner Peter ‘Coco’ Wallace telling his story.

Eastern Arrernte Elder Peter “Coco” Wallace is a “kwertengerle” who has spent his life working for the protection of culture and country.  A natural storyteller, Peter taught himself to speak English while working with different groups of people. He teaches youngsters as well as educates others about Arrernte culture.
