NAIDOC Week (3-10-17) LINK (Bawurra Foundation)
NAIDOC Week is an important event for us at Bawurra. To recognise the achievements of Indigenous peoples, and the history of the oldest living culture in the world is an important step towards reconciliation, and towards breaking down barriers of prejudice that Indigenous peoples still face to this day.
Australian Indigenous culture is a proud culture: robust, versatile, and unique. Our recognition of many Indigenous nations is important to the survival of our culture. Whether it be a poster on a class room wall, a community gathering for a barbecue on country, or even a traditional smoking ceremony with your local Indigenous nation, acknowledging is an important way to commemorate NAIDOC week, and an important step towards reconciliation.
