Highlights of NAIDOC 2018
To celebrate NAIDOC Week 2018 Woollahra Council held a range of activities celebrating the theme ‘Because of her, we can!’. During the week community members heard from two Aboriginal women who are leaders and advocates within Australia. Professor Jakelin Troy and Artist Bibi Barba shared with us the importance of their language, culture and tradition. Another influential Aboriginal woman, Kirsten Banks, hosted an interesting evening to learn about Aboriginal astronomy and the cultural significance of the night sky.
The Woollahra Library at Double Bay put on a wonderful program call ‘Jannawi – With Me, With You. This spellbinding program of traditional and contemporary dance, story, culture and artefacts was another great addition to the week.
