Kez had great pleasure in working with local Indigenous students from Parkdale Secondary and Patterson Lakes Schools to Re-Create the local Indigenous Creation Story for ‘Nerm’ – The land of the Great Bay that we also know as Port Philip Bay

The Project began in February 2017 when Kez and the students where taken on a Catamaran boat out on Port Philip Bay where they heard of the creation Story by Indigenous Elder Carol Briggs.  Marine Biologists and other teachers attended where we all had a chance to see the local sea life and see ‘Nerm’ from a different perspective.

Science has now ‘caught up’ with the creation story proving that this area was flooded many many years ago as the creation story explains.  The area was once a river before Bunjil, the Indigenous creator spirit that travels as an Eagle sent a great flood to the area
