Culture Learning Programs
It is vital to remain connected to our culture, land and history. We draw upon the knowledge of our community to design cultural learning programs to preserve our culture and reach many different audiences.

We call these programs “Healing through knowledge” because when our culture is understood, respected and celebrated, it helps us to heal from centuries of erasure, discrimination and inter-generational trauma.
There is so much power and pride in speaking our language, especially in a landscape that hasn’t heard it for a long time.Redeveloping our local language and teaching our community is vital to our empowerment and cultural identity.
“I’m an Aboriginal person and I can’t talk the language and it really hurts. You can feel it.”

Only 20 from an original 250 Aboriginal languages are still widely spoken. We preserve our language because it is critical to preserving our culture.
