Jonah Honeysett is a proud Taungurung /Wiradjuri man of the Nira-balluk clan who considers himself lucky to have grown up knowing about his culture, immersed in his culture, and learning about his culture from his Aboriginal parents and grandparents. It’s Jonah’s strong upbringing and sense of cultural identity that has inspired him to work for his mob and be part of the next wave of Taungurung People passionately protecting Taungurung culture.

What is ICIP (Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property)?

Tourism is all about sharing stories and knowledge with visitors. However, when it comes to sharing cultural stories or knowledge (through tourism or art or other forms of expression), there are limitations and cultural protocols that need to be understood and respected by both Taungurung People and those engaging with the content being shared.
