Bringing Back The Butchulla

The heartwarming short story of the return of Rite of Passage to the young men of Butchulla Aboriginal peoples of Fraser Island (Queensland, Australia). With a drive to bring back ancient traditions, Butchulla Elder, Uncle Glen Miller and various local community groups partnered with Dr Arne Rubenstein of the Rites of Passage Institute to create the first Rite of Passage for Butchulla boys on Butchulla land in over 200 years.

This inspiring story was captured by filmmaker Jimmi James Wright.
