Indigenous Bush Tucker and Medicine

Found in: School News

Pre-Primary students enjoyed a day in our bushland playground learning about how plants can assist us in treating ailments like the common cold and eczema. Mr Greg Nannup, from Indigenous Tours WA, had the students captivated as he explained how Indigenous people, from the Whadjuk area, light fires, treat snake bites and make clothing and other useful items using kangaroo skins.

Greg imparted some interesting and relevant information about sustainability, which is not a new topic to Indigenous people but rather an age old and very important lesson passed down from generation to generation.

Mrs Naomi Wheat, our Aboriginal Liaison Officer, and Mrs Kimberly Beasley from Murdoch University were both in attendance as we all expanded our knowledge about a valued culture, tools and useful plants in our very own bushland.
