The Northern Agricultural Catchments Council 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, 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. To download your free copy of the Education Resource or for more information on engaging Aboriginal people please visit www.nacc.com.au/project/education.
If your school would like to access professional development around either of these resources, please contact Bianca McNeair via email Bianca.McNeair@nacc.com.au
This project has been supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State National Resource Management Program, supported by Royalties for Regions.
