Spielwelt German Parents Association is a not for profit organisation running children’s programs in German in Canberra
We were absolutely delighted to welcome back Duncan and Wiradjuri Echoes to the GAP! The Thursday/Friday class had a wonderful time and learned a lot.
Duncan showed us some interesting Aboriginal artefacts and taught us the Wiradjuri names for them. He played his didgeridoo to make all kinds of Australian animal noises for us to guess, and then put it all together in a story and dance. He let us sing some Wiradjuri songs with him.
As a keepsake, Duncan drew us a kangaroo picture to colour in and take home.
The best part was being painted like Warriors and Berry Princesses, then dancing along as various Australian animals while Duncan played the didgeridoo and related the story about the frog Tidalik .
If you are lucky, you might be able to view this little video clip too, of the children dancing to Duncan singing a Kangaroo song:
