Event description
A 4 hour workshop held during NAIDOC Week to gain an introduction to Aboriginal Culture, Values and Belief Systems.

About this event

Auspire - Australia Day Council WA in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA (CCIWA) are proud to present these Aboriginal Cultural Awareness and Understanding workshops. This event is proudly supported by the National Indigenous Australians Agency in recognition of NAIDOC Week 2021.

Aboriginal Cultural Awareness is about having some knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal People's histories, Values, Belief Systems, Experiences and Lifestyles. This workshop also explores the impacts of colonisation and how these still play out today with our First Nations' Peoples and mainstream Australia.

This session is a great entry level for those starting out their Aboriginal Cultural Competency journey. The session will assist participants with information and understanding that can improve communities and workplaces for both aboriginal and non-aboriginal people. Basic aboriginal cultural awareness and understanding can facilitate real and lasting change through changed attitudes and behaviours at both a professional and personal level.

The session will cover the following material

  • Explore barriers between Aboriginal peoples and non-Indigenous Australians
  • Significant moments in history that have shaped the way Aboriginal Australians are today.
  • Cultural beliefs, customs and values and their role in Australian society.
  • Contemporary vs traditional lifestyles, connection to country, community and kinship systems.
  • The importance of self-determination and identity.

Key benefits and learning outcomes

  • Increase positive engagement
  • Minimise miscommunication
  • Improved confidence with awareness of cultural differences
  • Improved stakeholder relationships
  • Demonstrate your RAP policy in action (if relevant)

The session is facilitated by Mr Danny Ford, a Noongar man and senior traditional custodian of Whadjuk Country, with connections to the wider Noongar Country and Aboriginal communities across Western Australia.
