Aboriginal Nature and Bioscience Park (Girinyalanha): A journey of research into Aboriginal cultural engagement and science.

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

The Aboriginal Nature and Bioscience Park was developed by Charles Sturt University (CSU) staff in partnership with the Orange Local Aboriginal Land Council on degraded remnant open forest on Orange campus. Known as Girinyalanha, in Wiradjuri this means: a place to meet, discuss, and share knowledge. The summary of our aims are to: 1. preserve the remnant forest, 2. help preserve fast-disappearing Aboriginal knowledge about local species, 3. conserve rare and endangered local species, 4. develop a culturally appropriate educational and recreational area, 5. research the pharmaceutical, food and horticultural potential of species, and, 6. assist in social and educational research.
Grants have allowed for traditional burns and Western approaches to the removal of weed infestations, and the creation of paths and a Yarning Circle. Aboriginal cultural ceremonies have occurred as public events on site, as well as highly successful CSU Orange campus NAIDOC celebrations, and various teaching and learning experiences for students across several degree courses.
