EDITH Cowan University held Aboriginal cultural workshops at northern suburbs schools recently.

The university brought Brisbane-based Paul Burragun-Craft to Perth for the workshops in August.

The founder of the first ever all-Aboriginal boomerang team, Deadly Returns, taught boomerang workshops as well as sharing interstate culture knowledge about music, stories, language, traditional games and artefacts.

He visited Thornlie Senior High School, Warwick Senior High School, Belmont City College, Butler Primary School, Balga Senior High School, Merriwa Primary School and Butler College between August 27 and 30.
