This version of a chasing-and-tagging game originates in the Aurukun Aboriginal community and has been popular and played for as long as most can remember. This game has been frequently played around the streets, in the school at break time and before physical education lessons as a fun warm-up activity. The enthusiasm and vigour that the players display (all the while conversing freely in the local language of Wik-Mungkan) is a joy to watch and a clear indication of the vibrant strength of the traditional culture still evident in this community today. Edor is a goal-orientated, chasing-and-tagging game for a large group of players. The Yulunga: Traditional Indigenous Games resource was developed to provide all Australians with a greater understanding and appreciation of Indigenous culture by celebrating the games that Indigenous Australians have been playing across the country for hundreds of years.
