The Toolkit outlines how to use storytelling and talking circles to facilitate the sharing of Traditional Knowledge (TK) about Aboriginal resilience among TK holders, their communities and local emergency management practitioners. It focuses on accessing information about community strengths, past emergencies, existing risks and wise practices to help Aboriginal communities become more resilient to disasters. The details about storytelling and talking circles are provided as a guide only. Each community should feel free to adapt these techniques or substitute an approach that meets the needs of their specific traditions. We are aware that not all Aboriginal communities undertake talking circles as we outline in this document. Instead, communities may want to use some other type of community gathering or workshop to facilitate the sharing of TK. Prior to undertaking a new storytelling or talking circle process in your community, it’s a good idea to check and see what information may have been collected through a previous process. These older records might be a good starting point for gathering new information.
