Experience Ngarrindjeri traditions, heritage and culture at Camp Coorong.
We teach the ways that my ancestors lived.
At Camp Coorong we offer various activities we feel will suit any person or group wishing to learn more about Aboriginal History, Arts, Crafts and the environment within the Ngarrindjeri region.
The idea of the development of Camp Coorong was a vision that we, the Ngarrindjeri people, had back in 1985. We believed that we must have a place where people can come to learn about our heritage and culture. We also believed that this would lead to non-Aboriginal people developing a better understanding of our Ngarrindjeri traditions and our relationships to the land, waters, trees, plants and animals
At Camp Coorong, to develop better understandings, we tell of our traditions and our way of life before European invasion of our lands, We teach the ways that my ancestors lived.
We take groups out on field trips upon the land talking about places that are important to us.
We teach our Ngarrindjeri basket-weaving techniques. We tell of our stories relating to the land, waters, trees, plants, birds and animals--people call them our dreaming stories.
