Ngarrang Gulinj-al Boordup: Caring for our mob in health and wellbeing.
Our Aboriginal Health & Wellbeing Team, also know as Ngarrang Gulinj-al Boordup, recently undertook a cultural study tour to Kaitaia, in far North New Zealand.
The Team was warmly welcomed on the ancestral lands of Muriwhenua tribes where they had the opportunity to explore how health services are provided to local Maori communities.
The experience provided insights into innovative services that uphold cultural integrity, and improve the social, emotional, cultural, spiritual and physical wellbeing integral to health frameworks for First Nation Peoples.
The tour also enabled us to build cultural partnerships and networks to share knowledge and to inspire courage and creativity in our work. We will also support internships and other opportunities for cross-cultural learning.
