Culture

Bush food - Our CultureAs with all Aboriginal Australian groups the Yuku Baja Muliku people retain an evolving rich and ancient culture. This knowledge helps design and prioritise our land management techniques and programmes, as well as our broader aspirations. We have started a cultural heritage program where anything of cultural significance, such as story places, sacred sites, scar trees and shell middens are photographed, recorded and entered into a database. We also host cultural camps where all of our families come together on country to pass on and share cultural knowledge and information.

Our cultural knowledge includes an extensive understanding of the many food, medicinal, and resource uses of our plants and animals. Our culture advises and steers us in our relationships between family members, our people, and neighbouring clans.
