NACC has developed two education resources for schools: Sharing Yamaji Knowledge and Sharing Noongar Knowledge.

These resources align with the Western Australian curriculum Science and Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum for students in pre-primary to Year 9. The resources include information on your local Aboriginal group, connection to Country, bush food, traditional ecological knowledge (TEK), caring for Country and changes to the environment post-colonisation.

The resources have been developed in consultation with Noongar and Yamaji people and contain background information, videos, and activities to engage learners. The resources have been designed to complement incursions or excursions with Aboriginal members of your community.

For more information on engaging Aboriginal people please contact NACC NRM’s Aboriginal Custodianship Program Coordinator, Priscilla Papertalk at priscilla.papertalk@nacc.com.au or by calling (08) 9938 0100.
