Youth Pathway to Knowledge - Koolong Mart Kaartadjin

Our Night-time

Added by CAN WA

Description This documentary accompanies CAN WA's 'Karla Kurliny:Coming Home' publication which honours the Elders wisdom and stories, collated as part of the Cultural Mapping and Community Governance (CMCG) project. It features the young Noongar people who participated in a creative residential workshop. The workshop was born out of the Elders’ request that their young people connect with their culture. ‘Our young people are dying,’ Elders told us. ‘They need their culture.’

The young people talk about their perceptions of Aboriginal culture and traditional knowledge. They share their experiences of drugs and alcohol through theatre performances. Elders and youth together grapple with the challenges they face when navigating modern life and the legacy of colonisation.
