Indigenous Culture for Kids


 

 

Trent Hill is an Indigenous storyteller, educator and guide who has worked at Adelaide Botanic Garden for more than 10 years. His programs for Junior Primary, Primary and Senior School students include:

Aboriginal Plant Use Trails – conducted at Adelaide Botanic Garden, these trails offer groups a 45-minute walk through the Australian Forest, investigating the traditional uses of trees and plants by Aboriginal people, and relating seasonal movements to the surroundings.

Artefact Lesson – conducted at schools/kindergartens, this is a general introduction to Aboriginal culture, where children can hold traditional artefacts and learn about seasonal movements, roles of men, women and children and the diversity of Aboriginal people (45 minutes).

Dreaming Stories – conducted at schools/kindergartens, a Dreaming Story is told and then its morals discussed. Animal tracks, signs and symbols are drawn on a whiteboard, and in a sandpit if available (45 minutes).
