Aboriginal Culture - Aboriginal Bush Foods

Aboriginal Culture - Aboriginal Bush Foods | Indigenous Food and Tools into the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Here you can find information on Aboriginal Bush Foods - Insect, Animal and Plant Foods.
Fiona Peacock's insight:

Students are able to see pictures from the past that show various animals, plants and seeds. It is interesting to see that some of the foods could not be eaten straight away. Indigenous people knew that certain foods had to be prepared a particular way so that they were not poisonous.  Students can see a traditional society preparing food.

Fiona Peacock's insight:

Aboriginal Teacher's Aide at Golden Beach State School. In my final year of Education studies. My mob is Bidjara and Dhunghutti/Biripi.
Fiona Peacock's insight:

I enjoy being a teacher aide and I can't wait to be a teacher. I really love to introduce cross curriculum perspectives into the classroom. Children are really engaged when learning with an Indigenous focus. My pedagogical framework will change over the years I am sure but  Indigenous perspectives will always be part of my teaching practices.

This process shows the use of bunya nuts to make delicious pasta. What great clip that brings Indigenous flavours into a modern recipe. For schools that have a kitchen garden why not let them mix in some bunya nuts or other Indigenous flavours to make pasta taste incredible.

Fiona Peacock's insight:

Fiona says: this site offers information on how to create an indoor boomerang with seven simple steps. There is a template as well that can be used by the teacher. This could be a site that students could go to research about how to make indoor boomerangs. I look forward to making these with a class one day. Different design to other indoor boomerangs that I have seen but closer to the real thing and no one gets hurt.

Curriculum Resources - Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation - Australian Curriculum Resources, Curriculum

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation works with teachers, students and education departments to develop an extensive range of curriculum resources which highlight the rich learning spaces of the kitchen, garden and classroom.
Fiona Peacock's insight:

Fiona says: How amazing is the site. The Stephanie Alexander kitchen garden Foundation provides information on growing, harvesting and preparing food. This link specifically links to the curriculum and there is even pdf documents that you can get sent to you to download. One example is the year three document on Seasonal Cycles and Australia's History.  A great site that is worth exploring in other areas. If you school doesn't have a garden yet look into the grant section on how you can have this established in your school. I have seen first hand how successful this program can benefit students, teachers, schools and communities.

Banatjarl-Useful-Plants-and-Bush-Tucker-Garden-Report-compressed.pdf

document 

Fiona Peacock's insight:

Fiona Says: This report will assist schools to establish their own bush tucker gardens. The students will be able to look at the food production from the ground to the kitchen to the plate. There is valuable information which indicates how the plant is used. The techniques used traditionally can still be applied in the 21st Century.  The plants listed can be used for jewelry, ornaments, food, fibre, colouring  medicine and equipment. The report would be one that I would refer to for a technology lesson. There is even Indigenous language names for the plants in four different languages groups. This is a valuable document for anyone starting a bush tucker garden.
