Last week the FLO Watiโ€™s completed a two day bike ride camp. This was in joint partnership with Bikes Palya, PYEC and Land Management.
They rode the backway past Antara to Victory Well and camped overnight. It was a tough 20km ride the first day through sand.
Once at camp we learnt the art of spear making, cooked malu wipu and had an empowering chat around the camp fire!
Thankyou to everyone and the elders who came and shared their wisdom!
Everyone should be incredibly proud of their achievements!

The majority of students at Mimili are Anangu and their first language is Pitjantjatjara or Yankunytjatjara, as this is usually the language spoken at home. The students are only formally introduced to English when they start school.

A significant factor for Anangu Communities and Schools is the transient nature of the population. The School can have students who attend for periods of days or weeks and then return to their home communities.

The Anangu people tend to live in family groups within Mimili Anangu Community or on their Homelands.
