Kullarri NAIDOC Festival

"Children's Voices Shape our Future"

June 30th July 15th<p>

Welcome to the first ever Kullarri NAIDOC Festival, an exciting 15 days of activities showcasing the unique Indigenous cultural heritage and the diversity and excellence of talent of Indigenous peoples of the region. The Kullarri NAIDOC Festival has been developed from local NAIDOC Week celebrations and involves the communities of Broome, Bidyadanga and the Dampier Peninsula.<p>

The Kullarri NAIDOC Festival provides not only a celebration of culture for the community but also offers a realistic Indigenous Tourism experience to tourists and visitors to the region. The interactive events included in the program assist in creating understanding and awareness of Indigenous heritage and showcase traditional and contemporary culture of the regions people. <p>

Kullarri NAIDOC Festivities are project managed by Goolarri Media Enterprises located in Broome, Western Australia. NAIDOC Project Manager Kira Fong says, The unique structure of local NAIDOC celebrations enables community members, visitors and tourists to experience traditional foods, dance, art and crafts as well as contemporary music, culture and a variety of other elements.<p>

Kira Fong goes on to say, The Indigenous community embraces and welcomes everyone to partake in their daily experiences and lifestyle through organised NAIDOC activities. To be a part of these celebrations is a memorable experience and an opportunity for many. <p>

National NAIDOC Celebrations are held around Australia in the first full week of July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The National NAIDOC theme for 2006 is Respect the Past Believe in the Future. Wherever you live, taking part in NAIDOC activities is a great way to celebrate and understand Indigenous culture and to help build bridges between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.<p>
