We are entering a new Aboriginal season, Djeran.
Mitch is a Noongar young leader and member of the Uniting Aboriginal and Islander Christian Congress of WA. He joined Bec and Jeziel to tell us more about this new season and what to expect. With winter approaching we can expect a break from the hot weather with cool dewy mornings and light breezes.
Djeran is a time of red flowers especially from the Red Flowering Gum. As well as the smaller flowers of the Summer Flame. Banksias start to display their flowers, ensuring that there are nectar food sources for the many small mammals and birds that rely upon them. Foods at this time of year include the seeds, fresh water fish, frogs and turtles. Traditionally, houses were now repaired and waterproofed in readiness for the deep wintery months to come
