Summary
A documentary detailing the anthropological and historical story of the Badtjala people of the Hervey Bay and Fraser (K?Gari) Island region. Produced in co-operation and with the participation of the Badtjala Elders. "Secret & sacred : Badtjala" examines all aspects of Badtjala life inclusive of Creation/Dreamtime stories, Birthing, Male Initiation, Totems, Marital, Tribal/Ceremonial events & Burial practices including how the Badtjala lived and interacted with their tribal neighbours. "Secret & Sacred : Badtjala" also examines events beginning with the arrival of European settlement and ending with the current status of the tribe as it exists today. This ambitious project, 12 years in the making, is designed to educate all Australians about their Indigenous history and culture by building bridges of understanding, leaving a lasting documentary record. The Elders have made this project possible because of their desire to tell their story before it is too late and have signed letters of authorization to allow these sensitive subjects to be addressed. It is intended that Secret & Sacred" Badtjala is but the first installment in a 12 part series encompassing tribes from all the States and Territories of Australia
