Project Overview

Project Grant Year: 
First Peoples First Cultural Foundation Inc. -John Hartley
A unique multi-touch interactive bilingual language E-book based on a major Traditional Aboriginal Story of the Rainforest Ku Ku Yalanji people of Mossman in Far North Queensland (FNQ.) which talks to sustainable and harmonious relationships between people, animals and environment.
The  E-book is being made available on a number of digital platforms to be used as a community teaching resource dedicated to assisting, supporting, maintaining and re-igniting Aboriginal culture/s and language/s for the benefit of all future generations.
The book includes original artworks; oral storytelling, songs, dance and film.
This project is working with members of the last-line of fluent Ku Ku Yalanji speakers located in the Mossman area of FNQ.
Maintaining their cultural knowledge and the nuances that exist between land and language should be of critical importance to all Australians.
