Emu dancing at NAIDOC week

NAIDOC week is well under way and I had a lot of fun at the opening on Sunday 1 July at the Hilton Community Centre on Paget Street where I got to learn some Nyoongar language and dance like an Emu!

NAIDOC week is all about celebrating the history, culture and achievements of the Nyoongar community to Fremantle.

And I would encourage you to come along this Friday to the launch of a new documentary by Mad Bastards star Dean Daley Jones.

It is at 5.00 pm for a 5.20 pm start Friday 6 July at FTI Cinema, 92 Adelaide Street.

Thanks to Roel Loopers for taking these great photos
