Year 9 Indigenous Presentation

On Friday the 30th of May 2014, Year 9 students were able to participate in an Aboriginal presentation by two Indigenous people from ‘Let’s Bridge the Gap’.  Throughout the performance we were able to learn more about the Indigenous culture. By watching this presentation we were taught things like song and dance, different tribal rituals, tools used for hunting and punishments for not respecting the elders. During the performance people from the Year 9 cohort participated by joining them on stage to dance both the kangaroo dance for boys and emu dance for girls. We were able to learn how traditional Indigenous Australians lived before colonisation and how their lifestyle changed once British settlement begun.  We also learnt how the Aboriginals have had to adjust to our lifestyle.
