PROPER WAY

In traditional Aboriginal society, women and men had distinct but equally important roles that were beneficial to the whole community. The gender specific tasks, ceremonies and arts performed individually by women and men adhere to a strict PROPER WAY of Aboriginal lore.

Out of respect for the continual practice of Aboriginal tradition of women’s and men’s business, and to maintain ancient but evolving cultural traditions in today’s modern Aboriginal society, Blacktown Aboriginal artists, youth, elders, and men’s and women’s groups have come together to explore and celebrate the uniqueness of creating art from a cultural PROPER WAY perspective.
