It was great to see so many community mob who are no stranger to Atherton Park gardens in Fitzroy. A place that holds a lot of significance to the Victorian Aboriginal community. Although the cold weather was in effect that didn’t stop the ceremony taking place.
The day was full with great artists which included a Lighting of Ceremonial Fire by Chris Hume and Welcome to Country by Uncle Colin Hunter Jnr.
With ceremonial traditional dance by the Djirri Djirri dancers, Murrundaya Yepengna Dance Troupe and Bandok Tati.
The music today was outstanding and MC Jason Timiru always knows how to bring people together.
Thank you to the musicians who performed today.
