Protect, Respect, Connect . . . understanding and protecting Worimi cultural sites, artefacts and values is at the heart of the Worimi Conservation Lands Board of Management’s vision.
The Worimi Conservation Lands is host to an extraordinary number of significant cultural sites that contain a diverse range of artefacts and values; all of which provide a window into the past and showcase the connection and harmony to the land held by the Worimi for thousands of years.
Over the past week, the WCL Board hosted a series of 2-day Aboriginal Site Identification workshops that provided hands-on experience and gave Worimi Custodians and Non-Aboriginal caretakers, the opportunity to come together and listen, learn, share stories and connect as one in their custodial and caretaking roles.
The hands-on training strengthened practical skills focused on artefact types, site identification, recording and understanding cultural heritage legislation. Better still; it shaped new understandings and relationships, creating greater appreciation for the roles played in protecting Australia’s ‘Oldest Living & Continuous Culture’ in the current social and legislative environment.
