Ochre – Sweat of the Mother & Wayapa Wuurrk

Ochre – Sweat of the Mother & Wayapa Wuurrk

28 August 2022 

10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Ochre-Sweat of the Mother & Wayapa Wuurrk

Join Jrumpinjinbah (Uncle Paul McLeod), Michele Heaton and Cate Peterson, Director of Ngungwulah Aboriginal Corporation as we dive deep into the Cultural significance of Ochre and experience being ‘painted up’.

This event will be held in Booderee National Park. Booderee means Bay of Plenty in the local Dhurga language and was returned to Traditional custodianship in 1995.

Jrumpinjinbah is an Yuin Elder with deep lineage, holding custodianship of the Jervis Bay area, Bherwerre and beyond. He will share local stories that guide the use and inclusion of ochre for ceremony and in our day to day.

Cate will help embed this local knowledge in the ethnographic understanding of trade routes and the historical mining of ochre throughout this nation.

Once painted up Michele will take particpants into a deep embodied connection to Country with a Wayapa Wuurrk practice as they explore the reciprocal relationship to this earth and all things in it.

Bring along a picnic or plate to share for lunch afterwards and a continuation of the Yaan as they continue to build the picture of place-based healing on Yuin Country and explore the important role we all play, in bringing about a healed country and peoples.
