Gumbaynggirr Country – Nambucca Heads Region
A few weeks ago TIPIAC had the opportunity to film on Gumbaynggirr country, Nambucca Heads, NSW, AUSTRALIA. Being able to listen and learn about Gumbaynggirr culture and history was such a great experience. We got to taste bush tucker, learn language and listen to Creation stories of the area. Our guide Michael Jarrett a local Gumbaynggirr man from the Baga-Baga clan of Nambucca Heads taught us about the local language and culture. We got a few short films made on the area and are working currently to develop some lessons and units of work around the knowledge that Michael shared with us. Below is a short film about Gumbaynggirr totems.
TIPIAC would like to thank Michael again for sharing his knowledge of Gumbaynggirr country. We loved listening to you speaking and also teaching us your local Gumbaynggirr language with us. Your time is very much appreciated!
