SCHOOL INCURSIONS

IN-SCHOOL INDIGENOUS EXPERIENCE

Kadoo Tours offer an ‘in-school’ power-point presentation exploring subjects such as Indigenous understanding and harmony, the invasion or colonization question and indigenous expression and how they connected to the land. We will happily work with teachers and the school’s curriculum to give students an interesting and fun indigenous experience without leaving school grounds.

Tim will share with students how his tools and weapons were made and used, explain his Dreamtime and mythology and how his people were the ‘Caretakers’ of this ‘Mother Earth’. We look at the changes that came with the arrival of the ‘white man’ and how the indigenous population of Australia were forced to adapt and still survive to this day. Students will take place in an ochre ceremony and be given the chance to interact with handmade tools, weapons and skins.

Students will taste a few samples of bush tucker and even wander about the school grounds looking for native plants and what they can offer in terms of food, moisture or medicine.

Presentation Cost:

From $10.00 per student

Presentation length:

1.5 hour

Minimum  Students: 50    Maximum unlimited

OTHER EXPERIENCES

 

Kadoo can offer other Cultural Services for schools & businesses to make that important day so much the better. These can ceremonies can be booked singularly or as a group.

 

WELCOME TO THE COUNTRY, OCHRE & SMOKING CEREMONY

Let Tim Ella and cousin, Trevor Walker, usher in a new year with a Welcome to the country, ochre and smoking ceremony. This works wonderfully at school sporting events, dinner and business functions, to ensure good fortune for the building/school and all present.

With the smell of smoldering gum leaves filling the air, be amazed at such a humbling ritual by true descendants of our First Australians.This is something your students, staff or clients will remember for years to come. Tim will give a brief run down of his lands borders and people and how today, we are all one people living on Mother Earth. 

COST - $700

DIDGERIDOO PLAYER OR DANCER

Tim's nephew, Brock Tutt, is an accomplished Indigenous musician and dancer.  He regularly visits schools as a performer or to do indigenous music workshops. Let him attend your next business event to give it that 'wow' factor. He recently performed at the launch of the 2019 NRL and the opening ceremony of the NRL Indigenous All-Stars match.
