Positive Ageing in Kaurna Country Communities through Traditional Foods, Medicines and Remedies

The Catalyst Foundation project, Positive Ageing in Kaurna Country Communities through Traditional Foods, Medicines and Remedies, was funded with the support of the Office for Ageing Well / SA Health. 

The project aimed to create awareness of the importance of retaining and collating information on Healing with Traditional Foods, Medicines and Remedies in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community as well as the wider community, this includes people such as GP’s, medical centres health and community groups.

An essential project outcome was to involve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities in the development of the booklet and the information continued within. The project also sought to increase community awareness of the value of these traditional resources and their importance to living culture.

One of the learnings of this project was the importance of storytelling and sharing of knowledge by the Elders with each other to the project to enable the development of this resource detailing the healing and health benefits of certain traditional foods, medicines and remedies found in Kaurna culture. This resource is available through the Catalyst Foundation website and we hope it is widely read and used.

We wish to thank and acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals and community groups who took part in this project and have contributed their valuable time, effort and knowledge in creating an informative resource which we hoped will prove valuable for all.
