We would like to acknowledge that our walks takes place on and with Noongar Country, in what is also now known as Perth, Western Australia, and with Derbarl Yerrigan, in what is also now known as the Swan River.

Something was certainly in the air on this windy and wet morning. Djenark multiple!

Djenark visited us several times. We invite you to watch this movie and pay attention to Djenark movements multiple. Then, we invite you to watch the video and move with Djenark.

  1. It’s interesting to see how the children are connected to the sliver gull by finding the feathers all over the river side either in the water or on the sand. They use the feathers to make sandcastles, dig in the sand or see if they float or sink in the river water. As there are more then one type of bird at the rivers side some of the children are able to identify the right kind of bird it will belong to. Looking at the colour, size and shape of each feather.
