YMAC celebrates culture and Country during NAIDOC Week
Posted: July 5th, 2019
From 7 to 14 July during NAIDOC Week, YMAC celebrates culture and Country in the spirit of “Working together for a shared future”. Our staff and members will be participating in several events across the regions and we hope to see many of our members out and about celebrating NAIDOC Week.
On Sunday 7 July at RSL Birwood House in Geraldton, we are honoured to be invited to present a wreath at the NAIDOC dawn service to mark the week’s commencement. Our staff will also proudly participate in Monday’s NAIDOC March and Mayors morning tea, followed by Streeties Big Breakfast on the morning of 10 July.
Another special moment to experience will be the opening ceremony of Carnarvon’s Cultural Centre on 8 July. Our Deputy Co-Chairperson – Yamatji Region Deborah Oakley will be representing the organisation, along with YMAC staff. It will be a great moment to be there when the centre open its doors to share the stories of Traditional Owners with current and future generations.
