Overview

On the 7th of October 2020, the Koorie Heritage Trust in partnership with Sharing Stories Foundation launched Koorie Culture Map.

Promoted as a groundbreaking project that brings Koorie languages, stories and culture uniquely together in one place, Culture Map is an online platform where people can explore First Nations voices, culture, and art.

Joining Connection Matters Radio to talk about this, was Sharing Stories’ Victorian Production Manager, Narungga and Trawoolwaway man, Daen Sansbury Smith.

In explaining the online project, Daen said: “[It’s] an interactive map experience, produced by Sharing Stories in partnership with the Koorie communities and youth from local primary schools.

“It has a collection of creation stories, animations, and videos of culturally significant sites, which are originally from the Sharing Stories iBook Collection.

“Today we have the Jaara community, we have the Wamba Wamba community and the Bangerang community.”
