KPA expanding knowledge of Port lands to Yawuru people
Written on the 26 February 2017
Cultural immersion training is helping expand KPA's knowledge and understanding of the history and importance of Port lands to local indigenous people.
KPA Board members, CEO Kevin Schellack and Commercial Manager Sean Mullhall all took part in a Cultural Immersion Training day presented by Nyamba Buru Yawuru Ltd.
The day began with Yawuru's Dianne Appleby providing a cultural induction, after which their CEO Peter Yu gave a 'Changing the Norm' presentation before taking the group on an On Country tour of Port lands. The group was joined by elder Jimmy Edgar and Yawuru country rangers who offered insights into the various areas within Port lands.
KPA's Board and management were enthusiastic about the training and appreciated the opportunity to learn more about the beliefs and values held by the Yawuru people and the history of Broome and surrounds. They came away with a greater appreciation of Yawuru language and the skin group kinship systems.
The immersion training is another step in building on the relationship that KPA has with Nyamba Buru Yawuru.
