First Nations people across Australia for over 80,000 years have used a large number of tools made of various stones and timber, that all serve a different purpose. Within Aboriginal culture, there are many stories which can be shared through art and creation of these items. When working outside it is important to be able to identify various Artefacts that you may come across. In this session you will learn how to identify varying timber and stone Artefacts, their traditional uses and the material they are made from. Some items have higher magical uses and so to understand these tools can give a much better understanding about how to approach them. You will learn correct process behind protecting and preserving the found Artefacts. Participants will be able to visually inspect and touch traditional tools and Artefacts. Along with Artefacts, it is important to understand our traditional sacred sites and what to look for in identifying them. You will learn the different sites including gender specific sites.
