Young Indigenous people are reconnecting with their Kalkadoon culture through a school holiday program at Mount Isa.
Twenty children aged three to 16 years learned Kalkatungu language, traditional symbols in painting, costume making, and dance.
Supervisor & Project Officer of Kalkadoon Native Title Aboriginal Corporation’s (KNTAC) Cultural Division says it had been a success, with lots of positive feedback.
"This is the first of many initiatives by KNTAC Cultural Initiatives Division. Throughout 2017 we have exciting things planned for our children that involve learning about our bush survival skills, bush camps and dreaming stories and sites."
The participants presented a showcase of nine dances and large art displays.
