Join Dr Tjanara Goreng Goreng for a discussion on what the oral traditions can teach us about foundational underpinning to First Nations culture, values, law and traditions across Ngungynateea (Australia).
Dr Tjanara Goreng Goreng is a Wakka Wakka, Wulli Wulli Traditional Custodian of the Djwan Djumbe Nations of Central Queensland. She is an academic who has been teaching Indigenous Studies since 1994 at seven Australian Universities. Tjanara was culturally adopted by two Elders of the Anangu Pitjanjatjara and Yankunytjatjara clans of the Central Desert and their families, with whom she did her PhD and who have given permission to share this knowledge.
Tjanara has drawn on her and her families Waka Waka, Anangu Pitjanjatjara, Yankunytjatjara knowledge over the past 45 years n in the development of this talk, which covers spirituality, ethics, law, epistemology and ways of relating to one another and to land. Tjanara now uses this knowledge as the basis for Women’s Business workshops and retreats she runs for non-First Nations people, which seeks to promote cross-cultural understanding and knowledge.
