Traditional Society Food Processing

Ngadjonji rainforest aboriginal people and their technology of food processing.

Via Andrea Taylor
Matt Hay's insight:

Here teachers can find extensive information on traditional Aboriginal uses of plant, insect, animal and foods by the Ngadjonji people.  This resource increases student engagement by connecting learning with the land, past and present. Students investigate categories such as shelter, clothing, healthy eating and food processing traditions; then compare traditional methods against modern societies methods.

Andrea Taylor's curator insight, May 22, 2013 10:23 AM

This website would be extremely beneficial to teachers when implementing the content strand of 4.3 of the Technology Curriculum as it will enable students to explore different types of poisonous plant food in traditional societies. It specifically looks at the Aboriginal tribe of Ngadjonji foods and the process of cooking, grating, and leaching to remove the poison from the foods to ensure they are safe to eat. This will enable discussion and comparisons to occur about the use of different food technologies in the modern society compared to a traditional society. 

Stephanie White's curator insight, March 11, 2014 8:33 AM

This website is a great resource for teachers to use when implementing 4.3 of the Australian Curriculum: Technologies which states, "Investigate food and fibre production and food technologies used in modern and traditional societies." Teachers could use this website to teach students the way the Ngadjonji rainforest aboriginal people processed their food and the technology associated with their food processing. Then, teachers could expand the lesson further and have a discussion comparing the technology involved in the Ngadjonji's food processing compared to modern food processing.
