International Day of the World’s Indigenous People

Thursday, 31 August 2017

Tags:

Wednesday 9th August marks the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People, a day used to celebrate and recognise the stories, cultures and unique identities of indigenous peoples around the world. And South West Campus arranged an event that showcased the culture and talent of our own Noongar people.

Unfortunately the day coincided with the coldest day of the year, a mere 6 degrees. The wet, windy and very cold conditions forced a change of venue from Kulbardi court to the Sports Hall, were a variety of information displays and exhibitions were set up.

A highlight of the day was the music and dancing provided by Wesley College’s Morditj Mob. These young men braved the freezing conditions to put on a memorable performance and followed up with an interesting workshop on how to play the Didgeridoo.

It was a shame the conditions kept most people away, however those that did attend enjoyed the fantastic performances, delicious Kangaroo Stew and Damper and cultural exchange. Huge thanks go to Wesley College and the Collard Family for their assistance in putting together this event.
