July 3, 2016 Leave a comment
This morning NAIDOC Week kicked off in Freo at the Army Museum which included a smoking ceremony, plaque unveiling, and some films which looked at the important role aboriginal people played in wars Australia has fought in. It was a really worthwhile event.
There will be lots more events during the week at the Walyalup Aboriginal Culture Centre. This year’s theme is “Songlines: The living narrative of our nation”.
Events include workshops, bushfoods, movie screening, live dancers, aboriginal art and culture mini-market and acoustic performances.
