Uluru’s two local primary schools have been working together on an intercultural program focusing on Indigenous stories and culture.
The students are producing their own multi-media version of the traditional Lungka__t__a (blue tongue lizard) story.
They’re producing artwork using both traditional and modern methods as well as recording an audio track to accompany the presentation.
It has been a great opportunity for Mutitjulu and Yulara students to share culture and develop new friendships.
The Nyangatjatjara College rangers recently had the opportunity to make some i__rmangka-irmangka ointment. This potent bush medicine is made from the desert fuchsia leaves (Eremophila alternifolia) and is used as a rubbing medicine for aching joints and also as a chest rub for coughs and colds.
A grand total of 38 school groups have visited the park this month – that’s a total of 1,832 students and teachers learning all about the natural and cultural values of Uluru.
