Luke Russell is a very proud Worimi man. I am unbelievably privileged to be have the opportunity to learn and pass on the ingenious knowledge of my old people. I have been fortunate enough, over the years, to learn and work with some truly genuine knowledge holders who are helping me on this journey.
I am currently working to re-awakening my people’s traditional dialect, also working with all dialects within my language group. I have the pleasure of sharing my knowledge of traditional bark canoe making, tool making and, most importantly, re-telling the true stories, beliefs and practices of the Worimi and of those within the Kattung language group.
I look forward to sharing with all and if I can learn from you, please introduce yourself and we’ll sit down for a yarn.
