E17 The One with the Welcome

Welcome to Phenomenom!

Senior Wurundjeri Elder Aunty Di Kerr and Wardandi Bibbulmun Elder Aunty Dale Tilbrook explain what the Welcome to Country ceremony means, and explore the similarities and differences of their traditions. This helps facilitate students’ understanding of the connection between culture and the land for Australia’s First Peoples. Students will also begin to understand how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have traditionally relied on an acute knowledge of the cycles of the year for their food supply, whilst recognising Australia’s unique diversity of climatic zones for growers.
