Here is an example of how Aunty Olga Collis-McInespie, one of the Murrawarri Nation's great teachers, works with symbols and images to teach cultural awareness to groups of people visiting her learning place (a garden of living Koori history).


People come away from the experience of Olga's place with a deep and profound understanding that changes their lives and the way they work. Olga has been involved in the ongoing development of 8ways since 2009. You can contact her on
