CULTURAL PROTOCOLS FOR INDIGENOUS DRUMBEAT
In January 2020, we established the Phase 1 Cultural Reference Group with Aboriginal representatives from agencies involved in this project, to develop cultural element of the customisation. This group agreed on key principles to protect the integrity and Aboriginal ownership of the project and to promote the capacity building and sustainability through the region for the long term.
In August 2021, we established the Phase 2 Cultural Reference Group in Halls Creek. This group vetted the cultural materials to ensure the program was suitable for local delivery. They also reviewed and added to the Cultural Protocols for Indigenous DRUMBEAT. Click here for more details.
The Phase 1 and Phase 2 Cultural Reference Groups from the West Kimberley and East Kimberley respectively, now form a Cultural Reference Group across the Kimberley, to collectively provide advice and feedback about program materials.
