Noel Butler, a holder of knowledge and keeper of stories won the Outstanding Contribution to Reconciliation Award for NAIDOC week to acknowledge the years of working and sharing his Cultural knowledge and skills to Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. From education locally and across North West Queensland, Kimberley WA to the construction of 'One Track for All'.

A BIG THANK YOU to the people of Shoalhaven for nominating Noel. This prestigious award covers the local Government areas of Illawarra, Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven.

So deserved for his continuing sharing of Culture for over 35 years! Noel has a gift of departing his Cultural knowledge to all backgrounds and of any age. Noel sets an example for others that the two-way system, Noel and myself, Trish of teaching and learning still works. People from different backgrounds and Culture together achieve excellent results in paving the way for continued extension of Cultural benefits for all people in social harmony and environmental sustainability.

We have travelled far to educate many on Australian Aboriginal Culture and also through Cultural Educational performances. Here are just some of our experiences:
  • An invitation by the Jewish community to hold a Healing Ceremony with and for the Jewish Community at Birkenau, Poland
  • Teaching Culture to primary and secondary schools in the UK
  • Artist in Residence UK 
  • Performing in the UK including Edinburgh Festival.
  • Representing Australia along with cousin, Bruce Pascoe and assisted by Slow Foods Australia at the World Indigenous Conference for Sustainability hosted in India. Provided by United Nations and other countries to help provide answers to western societies’ problems on non-sustainability of the future. Learning from the past from today's knowledge holders for a better future for all peoples.
  • Invitation for Noel, myself and Phillip Butler to India as special guests and to perform at the 'Monolith Festival' in Meghalaya.

Whilst near ... in our hometown we continue to hold Cultural learning days, walks and working with disadvantaged youth, organisations, universities, schools and the Dhurga language program with preschoolers.

Thank you to Marie Carr, our friend and Administrator who also does all our graphic art and digital marketing.
