    Description

    The Elders from Gunhigal Mayiny Wiradyuri Dyilang Enterprise have been working with the Hyde Park Barracks project since late 2018, with Gadigal and Gamilaroi Elders involved in other displays.

    The support for the Wiradyuri Elders was provided through the University’s Gulaay Indigenous Australian Curriculum and Resources team, which is the preferred agency of the Bathurst Wiradyuri Elders, whereby Gulaay helped facilitate the yarns, and organised an on-Country cultural immersion for the museum staff early in the project.

     

    Facilitating the University’s support for the Elders was Senior Lecturer Dr Barbara Hill, the Indigenous Curriculum and Pedagogy Co-ordinator, and Lead, Gulaay Indigenous Australian Curriculum and Resources team in the Charles Sturt Division of Learning and Teaching.

    “We are delighted that the University was able to support the initiative as an official sponsor with Sydney Living Museums and the Hyde Park Barracks exhibition specifically,” Dr Hill said.

    “Gulaay brokered the University’s support for the Elders’ involvements in the development of the exhibition, kept senior staff abreast of developments, and ensured the Elders and Gulaay staff were able to attend the exhibition launch.
