Description

This resource package is made up of 75 Indigenous-specific cards that can be used with Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to help with story-telling, yarning, learning, or counselling. Each card has a different image, which has either a cultural, spiritual, or community meaning. The images are used to help people describe their emotions, thoughts, memories, and attitudes.

This resource was developed by Suncoast Cooloola Outreach Prevention and Education (the regional domestic and family violence service on the Sunshine Cooloola Coast in Queensland), and Nungeena Aboriginal Corporation for Women's Business, in consultation with the local Indigenous community.
