We had a #deadly weekend at @thegladesgolfclub for the Deadly Choices Men’s Golf Day! Good mob, good weather and big smiles all round. Thanks to everyone who came along.
What made YOUR weekend #Deadly ? Let us know!
Repost @enterthedragon__ Just so people are aware.
Indigenous Tribes, Mobs, Clans and Nations are all different things.
This is a common mistake I hear often when people are addressing indigenous issues.
And actually most indigenous Australians could name a number of groups of which they are members, each group being defined in terms of different criteria and often with much overlap.
But not to fear - think of it as simply as this... ________________________________
1) A Tribe or Mob - is your own individual group which hold its own unique customs, traditions and history.
Note: There are roughly 500 tribes and Mobs in Australia.
So for example - anyone born or who holds family in the Melbourne area would be (Wurundjeri)
(Your Suburb - eg. Footscray )
2) A Clan - is distinguished by language.
So my own would be (Gumbangarri).
But you can be a member of different tribes and clans simultaneously, much like being \"aussie\" but learning Italian you see.
Because you would never say you were english because that is the language you speak you would say \"Aussie\" or Australian.
(Your Language - eg. English )
3) Nation - Is a large sector encompassing all Tribe, Mobs and Clans, much like a state.
It also has combined weather, agriculture and ecological conditions with the groups within it.
For example The Kulin Nation.
Which encompasses most \"Victorian\" clans.
(Your State eg. Victoria)

Lynelle presented for Speaking in Colour at the Adamstown OOSH vacation yesterday our School Holiday Interwoven Workshops. “What a great day we all had !45 little sets of hands creating bracelets and God’s Eye’s
I was so pleased when a little person who was struggling , came back to the group with a friend and nailed her God’s Eye ! Fabulous result !
The kicker today for me was to get a handmade Thankyou card , and the kids asking if I would be back next year ?! Lol”
I’ve just got back home after completing the Healthy Culture, Healthy Country two-day workshop. It truly is an eye-opening experience regarding Indigenous Australian pedagogies. I believe that these types of workshops are important for preservice teachers and educators as sure, I can literally write a 2000 word essay on the issues, the prevailing deficit discourse that revolve around young Indigenous Australian students. However, I don’t think that’s enough to just analyse the problems. I want to be able to address these issues, these types of workshops provide us with effective approaches we can take to cater to our Indigenous Australian students. I really can go on and on, but the key thing that I learned throughout the two days is this: Teachers need to be facilitators to learning and collaborate with the local Indigenous community through the AECG. This way you can work together to provide your students with a contextually accurate and meaningful learning experience. Yes, there will be difficulties and there is no one-size fits all solution and, in my opinion, there never will be. However, the hardest step a person can take isn’t the first step, it’s the second step and the ones after that. We have to keep going and not give up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bring your kids during these school holidays and let them learn the ancient skill of tracking animals and the story that they leave behind with their footprints. They will also play the Bushtucker campfire game and learn to find the right plants for the right survival situation.
We have two great programs - Bush Life and Bush Food Hunt - that can be combined to make it a full day program by simply booking the corresponding morning or afternoon activity on the same day. To find out more visit our website> centennialparklands.com.au/whatson
Our journey in education began in 1994. We’ve grown and learned so much since then, but our vision remains the same - making the world a better place, and ensuring our Murri children and grandchildren have a better educational experience. #IndigenousEducation#AboriginalEducation#EarlyYearsExpo
