Protecting the Aboriginal Heritage and Culture is something I am passionate about, and have been presenting Dreamtime stories and Aboriginal art activities for children in schools and kindergartens for the past few years. Cultural Awareness I believe, must be preserved.
I’ve had the privilidge of sharing stories from the Dreamtime, integrating the use of Australian animal puppets, and encouraging the children to interact in the story. I seen the delighted faces when telling the stories which makes the whole experience worth while.
The children really enjoy the art and craft activities that always relate to the story they have just heard. It is a very special way to encourage Cultural Awareness as a natural part of our everyday lives.
For more information how your school can participate in Aboriginal Cultural Awareness lessons, feel free to contact us. Full details are on our contact page.
Bob Randall says it beautifully in his book ‘Nyuntu Ninti’ – What you should know, when he describes the connection with the land that the Aboriginal people have.
He says ‘Being alive connects you to every other living thing that’s around you. You’re never lost and you’re never alone – you’re one with everything else that there is.”
I look forward to sharing our Culture with you.
