Connecting to Country & Community, cultural site awareness training*
September 2 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm AESTFree
Cultural site awareness training for landcarers and land managers in the Nightcap community
Richmond Landcare invites landcarers and land managers in the Nightcap community to connect to Country and community through cultural site awareness training.
Who: Join Widjabul-Wia-bal Traditional Custodian and heritage consultant from Jargoon Heritage Consulting Ashley Moran for a day of knowledge sharing.
What: Ashley will discuss known or potential cultural heritage sites, artefacts, scar trees, middens, ceremonial grounds and tangible and intangible ecological values that are known to have cultural value to Aboriginal people with connections to what is now known as the Nightcap Ranges.
He will cover cultural mapping and story telling, approval and cultural protocols, and what to look for when undertaking bush regeneration; identification and reporting via AHIMS database.
After lunch we will visit local Aboriginal significant sites.
Where: The Channon – Traditional Country of the Widjabul Wia-bal people of the Bundjalung Nation (venue confirmed upon registration)
Why: To inform regeneration activities and/or be used in future fire planning activities which support the recovery of native flora and fauna which may have been directly or indirectly impacted by 2019 wildfires in the Nightcap and surrounding ranges. The long-term resilience of the native vegetation communities and cultural heritage sites is the intended outcome of work by Traditional Custodians.
This Landcare-Led Bushfire Recovery project ‘Nightcap Resilience 2: Restoring the Nightcap Connector Rainforests’ has been supported by the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Program for Wildlife and their Habitat.
