Aboriginal Cultural & Community Awareness Online Course

First Nations Australian culture and history is over 50,000 years old making Aboriginal Australians the longest-living culture on the planet. Walya Productions Course One provides a condensed overview of First Nations Australians and in a short amount of time gives justice to the depth, diversity, sophistication and richness of First Nations Australians’ culture and community.

What you will learn

Learn about facts and inventions, about our sophisticated kinship systems, the amazing story of Maudie and Olive Kennedy, understand how policies impacted Aboriginal people and why Governments are committed to redressing the impact.

We have specifically designed a 3-hour course so you can be introduced to the complexity, and sophistication of our community structures, cultural protocols, belief systems and values.

“The music in this overview video was composed and arranged by artist River Jamijinpa Loizou and honours our central Australian origins and symbolises our sophisticated, adaptable and complex nature and culture”.

My name is Irene Sazdov and a very proud Nurrunga women from South Australia. I have worked in the Education and Employment sectors for over 15 years. I completed the Walya Productions Aboriginal Cultural and Community Awareness e-learning course to assess its suitability for non-Aboriginal staff. I found it to be the best online e-learning course. It has changed both my personal and work life in such a positive way that the underlying message I felt was so important it inspired me to offer to help promote this course. As an Aboriginal person I would have loved for this course to been available to me when I was at School. It conveyed in the most sensitive and concise way the unique challenges and circumstances faced by Aboriginal people in away that was inclusive of the non-Aboriginal Australian community. I strongly recommend and encourage everyone to undertake this course.

Irene Sazdov

I highly recommend Walya productions Course 1 Cultural Awareness and Course 2 Community Equity. Course 1 paces the learner through the incredible ingenuity and core concepts of a rich, thriving and sophisticated Aboriginal culture, especially brought to life by sharing Damien's own family history experience. I've done other courses and stepped away from these with new knowledge and and significant awakenings. I would highly recommend these courses. The second course is particularly relevant for understanding health care concepts and how external factors perpetuating the poverty cycle and sociopolitical structures of racism has created a phenomenon which started 235 years ago and was not part of aboriginal culture or lived experience prior to British colonisation. The second course builds from course 1 but also stands alone. A Brilliantly thoughtful course!

I want to extend my sincere appreciation for the immense value your courses have offered. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in them and I must say that I learned a lot. The concepts were well-articulated, thoughtful, and provided an enriching experience.
