It has been discovered that there is lore and loot in Destiny 2 that has background and is connected to Indigenous Australian Culture.
A new Exotic Ship was released in June called the Woomera B-5. The Lore reads “A flying wing favored by the Fighting Dharug, a group of Warlocks who hold the Hawkesbury Sea”
Woomera translates to a stick used to throw a spear more forcibly, but it is also a town in South Australia. Dharug refers to the traditional owners who come from New South Wales.
To get a little deeper, the Hawkesbury Sea refers to The Hawkesbury River, where there is a Royal Australian Air Force Base near by, with a b-12 Spirit Bomber shaped similar to the B-5! (source)
That’s not all! There was also an Exotic Submachine Gun released with the raid 2 months ago called the Tarrabah which translates from Indigenous Language to Tasmanian Devil.
The Lore quotes “We walk where our ancestors once walked.
The world is very big again. It used to be small. I know because I was born inside its commwire-satellite-datawave skeleton. But even before that, before the Traveler wove us into a tapestry of peculiar threads, this was a planet of big, big worlds. Many of those worlds were lost in a collapse, but not the one you’re thinking of. Before the great Collapse, there was another. A longer, slower, bitterer collapse. Some things survive. Names upon rusted signs, phrases in impervious microfiche. As other Guardians save humans, I save words. I save stories. That is my mission, here on the shores of the Hawkesbury Sea. I surface the survivors. The sweet-voiced koodelong. The swift gangurru. The sharp-fanged Tarrabah. It’s a mission the Traveler started. After all, she surfaced me.”
Being a Koori Woman from Wiradjuri and Darug lands, and someone who played the game pretty religiously once, this excites me! I cant wait to see if there’s more Lore to uncover. And I hope one day we find out who invented these brilliant concepts.
