It’s NAIDOC Week!
July 7-14 is NAIDOC week, time to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As part of the festivites, DLA participated in NAIDOC week celebrations in Barmah (near Echuca) on Yorta Yorta County, where we helped to organise and run activities like cooking using DIY solar power, geo-tagging culturally significant sites and water actvities; all seeking to combine traditional cultural knowledge with modern techniques.
It was a beautiful day, and a gorgeous setting - perfect for a celebration! NAIDOC week is a great time to reflect on how to further develop cross-cultural partnerships and and raise awareness of Aboriginal Culture.
Working on a pro bono basis, DLA are developing a Vision Document that paints a picture for the future use of Yorta Yorta nation assets and places. This will lead to self determination, business development, training and cultural development and renaissance benefiting the Yorta Yorta Nation and the wider community.
