Synopsis

Waabiny Time Series 2 follows on from the success of the landmark Waabiny Time Series 1 kids’ variety program. Nominated by the Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM) for the ‘Best Indigenous Teaching Resource’ award in 2010, the show celebrates Noongar Language in a community and family themed environment. Our presenters, Kylie Farmer and Lee West, take children from the ages of 3 to 6 on a colourful adventure through 8 half-hour episodes with songs, dance and craft activities that are authentically indigenous and encourage participation.

Hear from the Presenter

“Waabiny Time presents an opportunity to showcase the rich, diverse and ancient culture of the Aboriginal peoples of Australia”

To make our elders proud and to give the youth pride in our traditions and history make it all worthwhile. My people have the strength of our warrior grandfathers and grandmothers to carry on our culture even as the technology and landscape of our world changes”

– Lee West, Presenter

“So Merlin Cornish from Siamese came on board as series 2 Art Director. And what a colourful difference he has made!”
