For Primary Schools
After delighting over five thousand students and teachers during its premiere in NAIDOC Week 2020 the smash-hit Noongar Storytelling project is back for 2021!
Led by Perth Festival Associate Artist and Noongar language reclamation powerhouse Kylie Bracknell, the videos capture Noongar children’s stories told by Kylie and Noongar storytellers Annie Dabb, Peter Farmer II, Derek Nannup, Olman Walley and Connie Yarran.
STAY TUNED FOR NEXT YEAR!
This project has now ended. If you enjoyed these resources and want to engage further, we can provide a contact list of Noongar Storytellers who are available for schools incursions and further engagement. Please contact this email if you would like their contact information.
MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
Each was filmed at an iconic WA location such as Kaarta Koomba [Kings Park] and Nanyi-Yandjip [Yanchep National Park]. The original five plus a few new videos will be available to registered schools only, to use as part of NAIDOC Week 2021 activities. Brand new Education Kits for Lower and Upper Primary respectively will also be available, to expand on the use of Language and Noongar connection to boodja [land].
This year’s NAIDOC theme is Heal Country, and these videos are the perfect way to celebrate generations of love and respect for this boodjar we all share. These videos connect directly with Language and HASS curricula, in addition to cross-curriculum priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.
