Rottnest Cultural Experience
Members of KAEFER Integrated Services were privileged to take part in an “On Country” Cultural Experience at Rottnest Island earlier this month, also known as Wadjemup to the Noongar peoples. The 2-day experience provided valuable insights into Wadjemup, including the island’s cultural significance to First Nations people, as well as truth-telling of its history.
As we continue on our RAP journey, this experience was a fantastic opportunity for enhancing cultural awareness, promoting respect for First Nations traditions and developing strategies towards reconciliation efforts between First Nations and non-First Nations communities.
Thanks to Whadjuk Noongar Elder, Danny Ford and Advisor, Helen Walley, from Kambarang Services for guiding us throughout the excursion, as well as Whadjuk Elder Herbie Bropho for conducting a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony.
