one family’s perspective
Griffith University’s School of Education and Professional Studies is pleased to produce this project in collaboration with Kombumerri Traditional Custodians, and the Queensland Department of Education. The shared vision is to engage Gold Coast students in reconciliation, respect, and recognition of the world’s oldest continuous living culture.
The project has gathered Kombumerri knowledge and stories in a series of fifty short videos. Six Kombumerri Traditional Custodians share their perspectives, passed down through generations of families. Versions of the knowledge and stories may vary from that of others within the broader Kombumerri community.
Now educators can utilise their professional expertise to embed this Indigenous knowledge into unit planning relevant to their year level, learning area and school context. Griffith University will incorporate these perspectives into teaching practices to increase awareness and appreciation of local cultural knowledge and recognise the Kombumerri people’s custodianship of the land on which our Gold Coast campus is located.
