The best way to teach Aboriginal culture is through the way all kids love to learn - with play! This Indigenous Aboriginal interpretation of ‘Snakes and Ladders’ is super fun and kids love it.
This tabletop Aboriginal game incorporates special cultural knowledge and encourages conversation about the values, the practices and the stories of Aboriginal communities. Players travel the board searching for 'Walkabout' spaces. When they land on these, their special cultural knowledge shoots them forward.
But If they're unlucky, they'll land on a 'Sacred Site' and must go back to learn respect.
The Walkabout game mat was born out of the imagination of respected elder from the Logan region, Uncle Barry Watson.
Indigenous Artist, De Greer-Yindinmincarlie, provided the artistic inspiration and is the sole designer of the board game.
This game is suitable for 2-4 players, for ages 3 and up, and includes 1 dice plus painted rocks to be used as player tokens.
This Walkabout Aboriginal game can be supplemented with other cultural resources including cultural mats, Aboriginal design doormats and educational games for your kindy, preschool, classroom or university too.

Embedding cultural perspectivesBy: Jules on 29 April 2018What a fab game, the kids just love it. It encourages us to have discussions around what are important local sacred sites and opens up discussions on many levels about what’s important to each of us as a family, culture and community.
