Respecting Aboriginal Culture

Respecting Aboriginal Culture

Last week the Certificate III in Tour Guiding students went on a Bruny Island field trip to Murrayfield Station – a working farm located on Aboriginal land.

Over three days, non-aboriginal students learned about how they can best acknowledge and respect Aboriginal culture when working in the Tour Guiding industry.

The aim of the three days was to give students:

  • An awareness and empathy for Aboriginal people’s history from the earliest times until today
  • An understanding  of the importance and significance of Aboriginal cultural heritage to today’s Aboriginal community
  • Knowledge on how to help protect and conserve Aboriginal heritage
  • Skills on how to foster in others a respect for Aboriginal people, their cultural heritage and the land; and to ensure any messages given to visitors are authentic and acceptable to Aborigines.
