“It can help make the connection that we all come from somewhere. By tracking back through the generations, you can acknowledge your ancestors which is an important ritual in Aboriginal culture.”
“I tell a story that explains the effect of Western Australia’s colonisation on Aboriginal culture,” says Walter. “Especially the impact of the removal of the Aboriginal men of high degree from their lands – the Boordier – or in other terms, the kings and emperors of our Aboriginal nations.”
Walter says that joining a Go Cultural tour at Wadjemup often proves to be a very spiritual experience for visitors. “As I share my knowledge, I can see people becoming emotionally moved from hearing the truth from our perspective, this shows me that they have become more connected to country.
"Our culture is about sharing and we invite everyone to get to know our culture and be part of this country and this land.”
