(Paint our Lore)
Paul Spearim Winanga-li Gii (to know the heart) is a versatile, dynamic, and professional presenter and performer and a doting grandfather and author who delivers culturally appropriate sessions in early-childhood settings. A member of the Gamilaraay Nation, of north-west New South Wales and southern Queensland, Paul gained much of his early traditional knowledge from his mother, father and extended Gamilaraay family.
Paul’s father’s second language was English; his first being his native indigenous dialect. Paul has also learnt his father’s native tongue and is now passing this priceless cultural heritage on to his extended family. Paul is well versed in:
- Indigenous dance
Traditional story telling
Artwork and artefacts
Language and cultural studies
Contemporary dance and movement
Paul is passionate about sharing his indigenous culture with all Australians. He never tires of engaging with children to allow them to positively embrace, respect, and enjoy learning about indigenous culture.
