Naidoc Week at Dragonfly's Early Learning
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we attend our Centre at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water, and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present, and emerging.
Above we see photos of traditional foods used by this culture as created by the children
NAIDOC week runs from 3rd-10th July in 2022 and is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories. It is a celebration of the oldest, continuous living culture on earth.
This is an annual week-long celebration of the traditional land- owners (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People) and an acknowledgment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture, and achievements. We take this opportunity of celebrating this week with the children as a great opportunity to embed cultural competence within our Centre at Coolum Beach
This is an opportunity to learn to develop respect, co-exist and communicate with people of different cultural backgrounds and ethnic groups
The nursery children had a discussion on traditional aboriginal foods like ants and grubs. Witchety grubs are seen as an ideal survival food that is rich in protein as well as being a valuable sources of Vitamin B1 and essential minerals.
Honey ants are mainly found in the desert areas in the Northern Territory and are a sought-after food commonly eaten by humans for both their taste and their nutritional value
