Connection to Country
Join Gunditjmara man Shea Rotumah in a conversation about his culture and his relationship and spiritual connections with country, including Dean Mar and the coastal formations of Cape Nelson. He will talk about Aboriginal occupation of coastal areas, including evidence of that occupation.
Shea will use ancient Indigenous artefacts, Indigenous weapons to demonstrate traditional dance and song. He will discuss with visitors his collection of stone tools and grinding stones and axes, while located on the spectacular coastal cliffs of Cape Nelson. His story will include the whale songline, wuulok kounterbu (blue whale) which can be seen from Cape Nelson during the months of November to April. His story and method of presentation is considered unique, particularly his use of a mix of traditional language and English.
