People development program: FRDC Indigenous development scholarship - Angela Jeffery
1. Develop a better understanding (self and community) of Aboriginal fishing practices - past and new - through development of educational materials
The aim of this project was to develop a better understanding of Aboriginal fishing practices (past and present) through the development of educational materials.
This was to be undertaken as on-the-job training while working at Fisheries Victoria’s Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre (MFDC) and, as a result of this scholarship, by researching indigenous fishing methods at the National Museum of Australia.
