New era starts with ancient tradition

Former Millicent resident Major Sumner played a key role in two capital city ceremonies over the weekend which marked the death of Queen Elizabeth and accession of King Charles.

Also known as Uncle Moogy, the Ngarrindjeri elder donned traditional garb for the events.

He undertook the “Welcome to Country” when the proclamation of the new monarch was made on the steps of Parliament House on Sunday morning.

On the previous day, he conducted a smoking ceremony in the vicinity of the statue of the queen in the grounds of Government House.

A wreath was then laid by Her Excellency the Governor Frances Adamson.
