(HR) Bindi-Bindi Dreaming Full Day Aboriginal Cultural Journeys Team Building Program

Cultural Immersion Learning Journeys increase awareness and create a better understanding of Aboriginal culture and people on an “Out On Country” experience, where participants will see through their own eyes what Aboriginal people saw through theirs. Participants will see bushfoods and medicines that still exist, feel and gain a sense of the journey of the old and young people that once utilised Wadjuk country. To give participants a greater respect for country and culture, these journeys are delivered at Western Power sites or on significant sites within Wadjuk and Noongar country.

Cultural Immersion Learning Journeys are aimed at sharing connection to country from an Aboriginal perspective. Shared is knowledge of the bush tuckers and medicines, Six Seasons, Whadjuk and Noongar history and culture, Spirituality relevant to significant sites, stories attached to each place and ways forward towards Reconciliation for all Australians.
