Our ‘walking together’ began four years ago when Kaurna Elder Uncle Frank Wanganeen and early childhood educator Liesl von der Borch began collaborating to create meaningful experiences for children on Country. Since then, three separate workshop experiences have been developed and the team of presenters has grown and changed. Today four presenters bring their individual wisdom and lived experiences to the workshops as they honour their traditional cultural practices through sharing knowledge and building understanding amongst children.
Each of the three workshops provide a way for children in the early years to meet with Kaurna educators on Country to learn about the cultural practices, language, and the interconnected relationship of our First Nations people to the very land they are meeting on.
Mukanthi, Kaurna for ‘play, celebrate’ is the name of the nature play space at Morialta Conservation Park.
This two-hour event includes workshops across three significant Kaurna sites in the CBD and is specifically designed to capture the interest of children and develop an understanding of the city as Kaurna land.
Wirraparinga (Brownhill Creek) is steeped in Kaurna history, Culture, and language yet this remains unacknowledged by most who visit.
