This high level session is designed to immerse into the oldest living culture in world history. Mundanara introduces key features and concepts that have been in practice for millenia. This knowledge is based on Aboriginal Terms of Reference (ATR) with the accumulated knowledge that has developed and evolved from and in this land now known as Australia.
Mundanara is guided by Aboriginal Approaches to Teaching and Learning which incorporate various personal experiences and humanising practices including Emotional Intelligence and Relational.
Mundanara gives a brief introduction of Colonialism, a process that uses tools like myth making. An example of the myth making pattern is the way that Colonialism is frequently referred to as something that has ended or ‘belongs in the past’.
An example of ongoing Colonialism is the governments refusal to grant Aboriginal people Land Rights, Reparations and the continuing policies that try to control Indigenous lives.
This session gives the foundational insights to lead into Aboriginal Philosophy, Logic and Governance.
