‘Yuura’ – Wiinanga’ The mirror has two faces. An Aboriginal knowledge encounter group with Dr Karen Martin and Anthony Semann

A 5 part online learning space


'Yuura'' meaning 'we see each other' 

'Wiinanga' meaning 'hear this, we've got some important things to share and learn' - in the language of Tjandai - of the Gwandamoopah people. 

Question: What do you get when you paint a cardboard cylinder with earth-coloured paints? 
Answer: A painted cardboard cylinder. 

Question: If you called this painted cardboard cylinder a ‘didjeridoo’, what is it you want young children to learn? 
Answer: Not much really. It might be okay as an art activity, but only just. As an activity that is supposed to build some understanding of Aboriginal cultures, it is even less effective. (Martin, nd)

We all have questions, we all seek guidance, we all want to do good. Here is an opportunity that will support you through this journeying of ideas and practice.

This unique opportunity brings individuals together into a knowledge encounter space to explore a range of critical conversations relating to Aboriginal perspectives and knowledges and their relationship with the early years and the communities they are located in. This is a democratic online space where sharing, encountering and playing with ideas and wisdoms is valued. We will explore a range of topics across our five encounters.
