Students have the unique opportunity to touch/pass around hundred- (sometimes thousand-) year-old masks, tools, sculptures and instruments that were once used by the Indigenous people of the South Pacific Islands or of Australia and the Torres Strait. Second Nature’s facilitators have specialized knowledge on the use of these artefacts and tell stories of a culture lost in time through an engaging internal presentation.
Our “Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures” programs for years 7-10 address cross-curricular objectives and can be delivered to students through a diverse range of subjects from Geography to History to Visual Arts! A detailed understanding and awareness of the key beliefs, values and social customs of Native Australians are key outcomes. These programs are delivered by passionate facilitators with specialist knowledge on local Aboriginal culture. Indigenous representatives diverge stories and inventions unique to their clan in an effort to teach students a vivid and thorough account of local history. This experience can be delivered to complement the following units or modules:
Your students won’t believe their eyes when a collection of museum-quality artefacts is laid out on their desks for this special presentation. They will pass around boomerangs, woomeras, coolamons and sculptures all with their own lessons on Indigenous Australian or South Pacific Island culture. This is an approach to a cultural study oriented on wonder and kinesthetic learning. If you are seeking a different approach to your study, we can tailor a presentation or excursion for you.
