About nura gunyu

Our logo

Our Logo tells you about us.

Firstly, it is about Swan Country, which is the meaning of our name in the Dhurga language of the people of the Yuin Nation.

Secondly, it is about Reconciliation as the Black Swan and the White Swan are swimming forward together.

The eggs on the nest represent the fruit of reconciliation - self respect, mutual respect, peace, and education.

The ancient colours honour the traditions of a people who have walked about on the land for something like 40,000 years.

Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremonies

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.

Noel Butler was brought up with both Western and Aboriginal Cultures, and gives first-hand accounts of the differences between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal history, lifestyle and society.

Programs and activities are flexible, can range in duration, content and context and are tailored to suit the needs of its participants. They can be conducted onsite, offsite or a combination of the two, depending on the agenda when considering the needs of the group. We provide our own resource materials including traditional Aboriginal artefacts.

Our knowledge and skills are taken from our own real life experiences.

In addition, our Enrichment Program is designed for Aboriginals still finding their way home or for those who have been denied their Traditional History and values. Extra Traditional Aboriginal Cultural knowledge could further enhance job chances, social skills and positive personal wellbeing.

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

For more information about our programs, please navigate through our website.
