A book documenting the term that the kids from Kongwak Primary School studied indigenous culture with elder Cassie Leatham.

This innovative Australian Indigenous education program, designed by educator and activist Amanda McMahon, was run at the small Kongwak/Inverloch Primary School. Blue Vapours documented the project, developed a project identity and produced a book recording the amazing experiences the kids had learning First Nations knowledge. This publication has gone into a second edition, in high demand from friends and families of the school as well as the Victorian State Government who has distributed materials to interested parties and made this a benchmark project.
