Well we couldn't ask for better weather than we've had the last few days. The beach shack was nearly emptied, we had a great kayak at amity and a great fun group for sandboarding. :) Didn't even have time for building my sandcastle :( Looks like it will be another great day in paradise tomorrow :)
our story We have a Responsibility & Right under our Cultural LORE
To Teach, Demonstrate & get People to Experience ‘My Kulcha’.
I have hunted & gather cultural resources since I was a little boy with my dad Glen Jones and older brother Allan Jones.
We got taught to catch mud crabs in the mangroves & sand crabs, fish, gather quanpee’s, eugaries here on Straddie.
Dad and our mum’s father our grandfather Richard ‘Dicky’ Perry taught us how to survive from the land & sea.
We learnt to use a spear, a net and help the fishermen regularly as well as going out fishing in a dinghy by ourselves to feed the family.
As a teenager I was taught how to hunt Dugong by dad’s brother in-law Uncle Sid Coolwell and dad’s brother-cousin Uncle Kenny Murphy.
Still today I hunt with Uncles Sid’s son, my brother-cousin Fred Coolwell.
We continue this practice by handing these skills onto our children and now my grandchildren are hunting & gather our cultural resources.
With turtle my brother & I would bring 1 or 2 home after the fishermen had netted and our Grand Uncle Walter Tippo taught us the skill of cutting turtle up the way he was shown and I now show my children, grandchildren and the boys who come hunting how to cut up.
Hunting & Gather cultural resources, has been a continual cultural activity practice I’ve been apart of since the late 1960’s as a child and still now I continue with my children and grandchildren.
