NAIDOC Week 2023

Published on Monday, 10 July 2023 at 3:25:12 PM

NAIDOC Week is a national celebration and recognition of the history, culture, and achievements of first nations people and an opportunity to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrating the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

Council recognised this special week with the installation of the NAIDOC Week banners and a booklet with the stories behind the art works on our NAIDOC week banners. These are available through the Visitor Centre, Library and the Shire Administration front desk.

Council also funded a Cultural Awareness Workshop for the community. Over 60 people attended the workshop facilitated by Sandra Hill, local Artist, custodian, Red Ochre award winner and representative on the Karri Karrak corporation. She led the workshop and presented letters and documents that followed a family from 1904 through to today. This was a very powerful and emotional workshop enjoyed by every member of the audience.

A big thank you goes out to Sandra for her courage and generosity in sharing the lived experience of many First Nations people in WA.
