Avon Youth was concerned about the disconnection between the youth and their cultural heritage. They applied for a grant in 2009 to Avon Catchment Council (now Wheatbelt NRM) to produce a DVD to record Traditional Knowledge to inform and educate Noongar Youth in Northam of heritage sites significant to Noongar people. The DVD covered The Women’s Birthing Place, the Men’s Meeting Place, the Old and New Reserves in Northam and Burlong Pools, identifying and recording Aboriginal culture in a 30 minute documentary. It involved an Aboriginal Elders Advisory Group, and young people for input into the content of the DVD, and all production was done locally in Northam.
