Eel Trap Demonstration
Catching a slippery Eel is no easy task but the traditional custodians of the Kulin Nations did so on a regular basis. They devised and made Eel traps woven from wetland reeds and Eels became an important food source for millennia. The knowledge was passed down from generation to generation in an unbroken line but that knowledge is now vulnerable. Few of the descendants remember and retain the knowledge. Auntie Dot Peters will be working with a small group of local Aboriginal people passing on that knowledge and using plant material gathered from the site. If you would like to see this traditional process in action and learn some of these traditional weaving skills, visitors are most welcome to observe and participate respectfully. Please register your interest- no fees apply but spaces are limited.
