Dyeerrm
Iramoo Student,Aliesha Newman
Students at Iramoo Primary School in Victoria have created a animation film called ‘Dyeerm’, which means bullfrog in Wathaurong, the language of the Indigenous people around the Geelong and Werribee areas. It is based on the well-known Aboriginal story ‘Tiddalik’, a drought and flood story about a giant, thirsty frog. The film has caught the attention of the Victorian College of Koorie Education, and will be used by schools throughout Australia as a cultural education tool. Gunditjmara woman Donna Sharrock coordinated the 21 Indigenous student crew members and local Wathaurong Elder David Tournier translated the script.
