Abstract

Many Australian Indigenous communities are losing significant cultural knowledge when young people are not able to learn the cultural stories in their own language. Thus the communities need to employ innovative methods to transmit cultural knowledge across generations. The cultural story of the 'Creation Mother' was captured and expressed in a novel new Avatar-based multimedia program, which overcomes important cultural restrictions, while promoting healthy child rearing practices and providing a motivational learning environment for the young mothers. The process of creating this story enabled numerous new important multiple literacy skills to be developed among the community members.
