Professor Tom Calma AO offers some tips on what Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can do while they are staying at home during the coronavirus outbreak.
What’s really important for a lot of us is it as Aboriginal people in our culture and our language it’s a great opportunity now for our young ones to spend time now asking older elder parents about ourselves as Aboriginal. I remember my grandmother as I was growing up she could talk about our country and and and describe it, and so would sit down and listen to her describe you know the hills, the rivers, the creeks’ how to go fishing, how to go hunting all of these issues are part of us as Aboriginals trusted to pass it on to the people. Irrespective of where we live we have an opportunity for us to share those experiences and look if there’s nobody at home that can really help you out then get on the internet so let’s do it let’s not get bored let’s take this opportunity to really express and to learn. Go for it.
