Cape treasures

Cape treasures is a collection of animations/group stories by children from four communities in Cape York.

Cape Treasures: Children from Cape York share stories - read along with the videos.

The partnership between Aboriginal Shire Councils, the Torres Strait Island Regional Council and the State Library of Queensland supports a network of Indigenous Knowledge Centres. The centres are community hubs that engage all generations in creative, cultural and educational activities. Strong partnerships, including those with local schools, are encouraging written and digital Indigenous authorship while valuing traditional expression through art, carving, dance and song.
