The NACC Team Spend Time on Country

Saturday the 3rd of September, two members from our Aboriginal Custodianship Team Cynthia Indich and Taj Mamid attended Buri Wonduri (Littlewell) Mingenew Aboriginal Reserve to support families Return to Country and celebrate Dreamtime stories including cultural Aboriginal education.

Our team really enjoyed their time at the Elders Connect Day , with a beautiful warm “Welcome to Country” followed by a cultural smoking ceremony by Wattandee Elder Thomas Cameron.

Tristan Moongoo alongside his elder uncle Thomas and nephews provided a dance performance and shared important cultural stories. We experienced the Wattandee dance performance which represented three generations of Wattandee Women dancing back on Country.

This local event had participants travelling from as far as Queensland, Carnarvon, Morawa, and Perth.

Cynthia said it was a beautiful and memorable day for all involved.

“The traditional dance directed by Keesha Forrest and Jannell Reeka Mongoo was heart warming,” said Cynthia.

“We are all glad too see culture back on Country.”

NACC NRM is proud to be involved with all groups across our area and to join the conversation as Culture is returned to Country. Thankyou to the Wattandee people for sharing with us.
