What is Muru?
The term “Muru” has many meanings across the globe.
The Eora people of coastal NSW, who’s language and traditional heritage spanned thousands of years, connection to the lands of the Murro-ore (pathway place) were strong and binding. The Eora people considered the Muru a “Road or Path” that often lead to important sites and was passed on through the generations. Over the years, the “Muru” has become harder to find as there are now many different pathways to choose from.
The traditional Maori society of New Zealand utilised the term Muru to mean seeking justice. Muru would often be enacted as a form of social justice for community members, allowing grievances to be discussed and resolved. In modern society, this concept of social justice is still strong and aims to ensure individuals and groups be given fair treatment, equality and an equal share of the benefits and opportunities that are available.
