Djinda Kaatijin (“to understand stars” in Noongar)
In a society where playing outside and using our imaginations has been replaced with screen time, it is important to remember to ‘look up’ from the distractions of the world and to appreciate the stars, their stories and our history.
Bilya Kaatijin (“Fresh Water Knowledge” in Noongar)
Connecting stories from Noongar land (south-west Western Australia) to Wonguktha land (the northern Goldfields), Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the Kikuyu people of Kenya, Bilya Kaatijin teaches us about the importance of water to First Nations people around the world.
