The Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation offers numerous opportunities for both Aboriginal and non Aboriginal interest groups who are looking for a dynamic and different understanding of  the  social and political challenges that our community face today.


The cross cultural programs that Dumbartung offer utilise a vast experience of community knowledge and history from Nyoongah people who have worked at a community level for over 30 years.

Half Day and Full Day Workshop

The Dumbartung Aboriginal Corportaion offers two formal style workshops titled "Changing consciouness" -Truth telling. The programs that are offered as half and full day presentations include Welcome to the site and the history of Dumbartung including the history of the Clontarf orphanage.

It commences with sample tasting of bush medicine, a tour of the healing environments of Dumbartung including the Womens tribute garden area which is a place of solace for the memory of all Aboriginal women who have died as a result of domestic violence and abuse, the tour then concludes in a very significant place that is a tribute to all families that have suffered the loss of their loved ones through suicide.

Participants are then engaged in a tour of the Kyana art collection which was awarded a significant assement award by the Department of the Prime mInister and Cabint and National library in 2010. This collection feratures many varying historical artworks as well as artefacts and other historically imporatnt objects.

Following a break the particionats view thought provoking audio visual aids regarding both the cultural and historical injustices that Aboriginal people have faced and the way these injustices have today become part of the ingrained trauma that our people are challenged with.

There are also in-depth stories and descripitives spoken about the stolen generations and other aspects of the 1905 Native Welfare ACT of Western Australia.

The sessions are concluded by open reflection time and Q@A style discussions. These presentations are carried out by both Mr Robert and Selina Eggington who have worked at the Dumbartung Aboriginal Corportaion since its inception some 32 years ago.
