Truly amazing what Gmu Traditional Games is achieving, after a recent conversation with an non Indigenous person how they had the belief there was a small population of Indigenous on the coast, which is untrue. That day we went to Cotton Tree Park and to his amazement Indigenous people playing traditional games, yarning and connecting with each other. Thank you David and GMU for providing this important cultural opportunity not only for our children but 'the bigger kids' too!
