ABORIGINAL CULTURE

 

    Here we will try to detail some of our Ngadjuri Aboriginal Culture.
     

    CULTURE

    A very important part of Ngadjuri Culture is the respect shown to the Elders by all younger Members of the Families regardless of age. Those who marry into the Ngadjuri Family have always honoured & respected the authority of the Elders. It has always been a condition for those claiming Ngadjuri heritage that the Elders teachings, views & opinions take precedence over the views and opinions of the younger generations. This is how the Younger Generations learn respect. Respect for the True Elders was and still is a condition of acceptance withing Ngadjuri Society.

    AUNTIE

    We address our Aunties by calling them Auntie and not by their name as a Sign of Respect. The Honour is that our Aunties are like our Mothers, they are here to guide us and never give up on their Nieces and Nephews. In our Culture when you don't have a Mum you will never be an Orphan because your Auntie steps in and Honours the Role. She accepts a Relatives Child as her own. Our People didn't let each other suffer, it's an honour to take in and care for a Family member with or without Parents. NO questions asked, it was just done.
