Event Overview: What was life like for Aboriginal People before the arrival of Europeans? In this session of our Koori Classroom series, students will learn about one of our most famous Sydney Aboriginal men ��� Bennelong. His country was Wanngal land - part of which today is Sydney Olympic Park. How would Bennelong have lived in the wetlands and woodlands of this area? What were vital foods for Bennelong and his wife Barangaroo? Join D��harawal knowledge keeper, Shannon Foster who will explain Sydney��s Indigenous seasons, share some Aboriginal science, culture and language from the Sydney region and discuss the roles of women and men in sustainably gathering foods and resources from the area. Shannon will interpret the meaning of symbols used in Aboriginal art which students can reproduce in class (and later complete their own artwork). Students will also learn an indigenous weaving skill during the Video Conference. There will be opportunity for each class to ask questions of Shannon.
