The MLT had been working with Adnyamathanha Elders and the Leigh Creek Area School (LCAS) staff for the production of a Muda (cultural history) of the Leigh Creek region. This Muda traces the origin of the Flinders ranges and tells of how coal came to be in the Leigh Creek area.

The short film was shot in 2020, it involves senior LCAS students and staff explaining some sections of Muda in Adnyamathanha language, on Adnyamathanha country. The selected Muda follows in the footsteps of Adnyamathanha ancestral beings and was filmed in significant locations including Arrunha Awi (Aroona Dam), Kakarlpunha (Termination Hill), Stokes Hill, Leigh Creek Coalfield, Wurlpinha, and the Cutaway Hills. Well done and thanks to everyone involved!
