Mermaid and the Mimi Spirits

Young Way

Added by SharingStories Foundation

Description This story is about the mimi spirits and the mermaids who live at Beswick Falls. Participants interviewed each other after listening to elder Frankie Tango Lane, they then visited the site he had spoken to them about and shared their experience of it and took photographs to reflect what they were talking about. This process was supported by SharingStories facilitators as part of a school unit about history and culture. We encouraged teachers to consider an interpretation of that through songs, stories and paintings, historical narratives relevant to the children we were teaching. The stories that evolved were a combination of working to evolve culturally relvevant learning in the school space and the students and elders interpretations and stories about their own history.
