nura gunyu

Hello - in the words of the Budawang people from the Yuin Nation speaking Dhurga "Wada".

Nuragunyu is from two words "Nura" meaning Country and "Gunyu" meaning Swan.

Noel Butler, Budawang Elder from the Yuin Nation is a qualified teacher, educator, mentor, horticulturist, chef and historian; and together with his wife have been teaching, delivering programs and working with Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal adults and children for over 35 years.

Our knowledge and skills are taken from our own real life experiences and we provide our own resource materials including traditional Aboriginal artefacts.

We cater to education centres and groups, Government departments and schools; and private groups.

Aboriginal culture

Indigenous Australians have been understanding and living on this land we call Australia for more than 40,000 years. We are the oldest and longest continuing Culture known to human beings. Where other civilisations have been and gone we are still here and we offer the knowledge and skills from those ancient times to today's society.

To have survived from the times of our mega fauna and great land mass changes we must have learned and gained the living skills within our natural environment to still be here today.We are the Ancient people of this land - we listen to the land and the ancient spirits - and this land is etched deep within our hearts. This we wish to share with you.

The natural outcome of learning and understanding between people is friendship and reconciliation.

Noel and Trish Butler have been visiting local preschools for a number of years now sharing local Culture with our little people.

Let your child gain an early understanding of the fascinating environment we live in by listening to stories, singing songs and creating their own dance while participating in ancient Aboriginal learning. Hearing the strange but fascinating differences of our unique creatures in this land they will accept difference with equality. In turn, your child can relay to you through this mode of early learning, values you may not have accessed yourself throughout your own life. This gives children confidence in gaining and sharing knowledge. Let them know, understand and value their homeland and all there is within.

Testimonial: “Hey Trish and Noel. Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your CD. I bopped along to it all the way from Mittagong to Sydney the other day and learnt a lot! A must for every pre and primary school in this land. Loved the format of the stories and songs and the cover looks beautiful.

“I do think your CD can do wonders to initiate kids into the richness of Aboriginal culture. I’ll keep spreading the word. So, well done to you both!” Dr Shaun Matthew

Our facilitators

Noel and Trish Butler believe that there is a real need for authentic Aboriginal education to be accessible in context. Something more than a book or a website, we offer the opportunity to experience and understand, to learn in the heart and the head.

"The things we teach find their origins in history and real life, from an aboriginal perspective. We seek to offer this with sensitivity and respect to all who want to share the experience of this great land we call home. We will talk about bush skills, bush food, history, lifestyle, music, song and dance."

You are invited to come and share the experience.
