Point 2.4

The develpoment of intellectually challenging resources


See Yuta Gonydjuy, The New Honey, At the CrossRoads, New Wax and Guku. This original story was written by Gotha, a parent from Gäwa Homeland.

This story describes a metaphor that encourages discussion and thoughtful reflection on the conflict between Yolŋu and Western cultures. It challenges the notion that we should be careful as to the paths we choose to follow in life's journey.

The metaphor has been used to produce five books of varying difficulty to match the abilities of the students.

See: Djuranydjura an ancestral story from the mainland adjacent to Galiwin'ku. The story was told to the Mäpuru children by Gätji.

The story is a metaphor exploring different world views towards land tenure and that the need to be thoughtful in accepting gifts and new ways from strangers.
