A group of elders from the Edwards family has been visiting Liberty Studios in Innisfail to record some of their traditional stories. Some of these stories can be traced back 200 years.
They have been translated from their traditional language into English and recorded on to DVDs and MP3s. This is an important part of our cultural heritage, so our stories can be passed on to future generations. Our Dreamtime stories are called ‘Bulurru’.
These are important stories because they provide information about our land, our sacred sites and intricate knowledge about our culture. Recording and playing these stories will give our next generation a reference and a point of origin.
