The Bidi Katitjiny Aboriginal Women’s Trail runs through an area of Piney Lakes Reserve which was utilised by Noongar women throughout the year, over the Noongar six seasons. The Noongar six seasons each represent a different period of activity dependant on the weather and the cycles of nature.
The Lost Seasons
Before the coming of the white fellas the seasons were marked by local events like sharks breeding and wattle flowering. The indigenous people had a good empirical knowledge of their local weather. Two hundred years later, science is finally acknowledging the validity of indigenous weather knowledge.
