Two Way Learning on Country

Kujungkarrini Health Camp 2022 (Gu-jun-garr-inni) Meaning - Unity and Harmony, Working Together. Following on from Growing Strong Brains workshops facilitated by Ngala and the BHP Pilbara Education Partnership Early Years team in Newman this year, the Martu organisation Kanyirninpa Jukurrpa (KJ) hosted Newman health service providers for an overnight experience.

Service providers used their Growing Strong Brains knowledge, skills and tools to share understanding of cultural ways to grow strong healthy children aged 0 to 5 and Martu families were able to teach service providers about country ways. Service providers built trust, developed relationships and demonstrated commitment to culture by meeting the where Martu families chose to engage.

Key learnings from this experience include a better understanding that engagement is a working relationship that needs to be consistent in order to familiarise service providers with Martu and Martu culture.
