Community Archaeology and Oral Tradition: Commemorating and teaching cultural awareness on Mua Island, Torres Strait
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 22 July 2015
Education is about learning. But it is not always about teaching. Nor is it always held in formal educational settings. Here we present an example from Mua Island in Torres Strait, where cultural knowledge was recently communicated and passed down to the younger generation through community participation rather than through formal educational institutions. The role that community research and ceremonies play in customary learning is here brought out through recent commemoration of the legendary hero Goba on Mua Island.
