Maitland Hill decided to start a cultural tourism business in his home town of Dwellingup so that he could share his cultural katadjin (knowledge).
It is an important way for him to engage others in Nyoongar katadjin, or understanding. “I enjoy taking people with me as we step back in time to explore the ancient ways of my ancestors.”
The tourism experiences that he offers are richly steeped in cultural authenticity and include Nyoongar dreaming stories about spiritual beliefs.
