Join Jrumpinjinbah (Uncle Paul McLeod)Michele Heaton and Cate Peterson, Director of Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation as we dive deep into the Cultural significance of Ochre and experience being 'painted up'.

This event will be held in Booderee National Park. Booderee means Bay of Plenty in the local Dhurga language and was returned to  Traditional custodianship in 1995. It is the perfect place to experience Connection to Country through the Ochre, through the teachings of Wayapa Wuurrk and simply being together on Country.

Jrumpinjinbah is an Yuin Elder with deep lineage, holding custodianship of the Jervis Bay area, Bherwerre and beyond. He shares with us local stories that guide the use and inclusion of ochre for ceremony and in our day to day. Cate will help embed this local knowledge in the ethnographic understanding of trade routes and the historical mining of ochre throughout this nation.

Once we are all painted up Michele will take us into a deep embodied connection to Country with a  Wayapa Wuurrk practice as we explore our reciprocal relationship to this earth and all things in it.

We invite you to bring along your picnic or plate to share for lunch afterwards and a continuation of the Yaan as we continue to build the picture of place-based healing on Yuin Country and explore the important role we all play, in bringing about a healed country and peoples.

Expect to leave feeling even more connected to Country, Culture and Community.

* Please note, you will need to pay the $13 entry to Booderee National Park if you don't already have an Annual NSW National Park Pass
