More than 200 people attend Naidoc celebration
More than 200 people attended a Naidoc Week celebration at the Peninsula Community Centre on July 2.
A Welcome to Country was delivered by Aunty Colleen Starkey from Mingaletta, followed by a smoking ceremony and then a performance from the Dungala dancers of the Yorta Yorta Mob who invited children to join in.
Ettalong Public School's indigenous dance students also performed.
Visitors on the day included children from Booker Bay Preschool and Woy Woy Peninsula Community Childcare.
"Children then spent hours on indigenous-inspired art and craft activities while adults read the Australian Aboriginal History Timeline, viewed indigenous artworks by local artist Kylie Cassidy and shared some bush tea, tucker and a yarn," said Coast Community Connections chief executive Mr Bruce Davis who hosted the day.
