Camp On Country

Esperance Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation (ETNTAC) recently partnered with our Esperance Stars program to deliver an arts and cultural camp On Country, as part of the Indigenous Languages and Arts program.

Twenty students from different year levels were thrilled to be selected to attend the three-night camp at Duke of Orleans Bay under the guidance of ETNTAC Rangers.

They had the opportunity to learn about collecting, preparing, and cooking bush foods – including emu eggs and acacia seed flour (used for making damper).

The girls were also given an opportunity to decorate their own sets of tapping sticks to use in dance performances, as well as learning some traditional stories about Wadarn Boodja (Sea Country).

It was fantastic to see how enthusiastic our Stars as they took part in all the activities. A huge thank you to the ETNTAC Rangers for all the planning and work they put in to making the camp such a wonderful experience for our students!
