MIGAY Program

Women’s Program

Cultural Healing for Women

The MIGAY program was developed to facilitate a healing program that ensures cultural connection and kinship between mothers and daughters. Within the school environment or outside the school environment, the MIGAY Program aims to create a support network between females and nurture those relationships. Gumaraa staff want to ensure cultural traditions remain alive by sharing knowledges to further enhance the respect of our culture. The activities in the MIGAY Program include possum skin drumming, art and dance – which all not only act as a healing tool but also creates a bond between women. This program instils self confidence through participation and achievement.

Each MIGAY participant receives a blank possum pelt and over a period of 8 weeks will transform the pelt into their own musical story connecting the people, the drum and the story.

How it Works

Each MIGAY participant receives a blank possum pelt and over a period of 8 weeks will transform the pelt into their own musical story connecting the people, the drum and the story. The MIGAY Program can be tailored to participants’ budget and is timed to suit participants.

Values

This program aims to teach students, parents and the community about the 5 R’s of the culture – respect, reconciliation, resilience, responsibility and reciprocity.

What Will You Learn?

Over the 8 week period, you will learn about the story and connection of the drum, learn the basics of drum beats and coiling method, and much more!
