CASSE – AAAC Partnership

CASSE contributes funds to the AAAC annual Horse Cultural Trek, funding two Aboriginal elders to mentor the youth on the ten day trek.

CASSE was very privileged to be able to visit Lytentye Purte on one of these Cultural Horse treks in June 2014, and join members of the community and Atyenhenge-Atherre Aboriginal Corporation (AAAC). The Horse Cultural Trek, which has also been supported by Bush Mob, has been an annual community event for the past half a dozen years and is the pride of the community.

The trek was attended by youth from Lytentye Purte and from and other parts of Central Australia and Northern Territory. The focus is on learning about culture, learning about law and learning about land. This helps make people strong in spirit and strong in identity and decreases the problem behaviours.

The AAAC Cultural Horse Trek builds strength, capacity, connections and spirit on country. Watch the videos of the people on the trek sharing their stories on CASSEtv.
