Our rivers are the blood of the earth. Without water, nothing survives, there will be no life. We need our rivers to survive in order to survive ourselves.
You are invited to "Yaama Ngunna Baaka" Corroboree Festival, a roving, week-long corroboree program to be held along the lower Baaka (Darling River) in early October 2019.
Dance groups from the river communities and around Australia will perform evening event riverbed corroborees in the townships of Walgett, Brewarrina, Bourke, Wilcannia and Menindee.
Yaama Ngunna Baaka is contemporary culture, traditional culture, food, art, song, dance, sport, football and family. It will present ideas from Aboriginal people, tell stories from the region, and connect Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities together.
We are giving you the opportunity to be part of a gathering that will shape the future of Australia for us all. Future generations will look back on this historic gathering, thanking you for your efforts in joining us to find ways to rewind the destruction of the Murray-Darling/Baaka.
To support this event, you can purchase a "Save the Rivers" tshirt or contact Bruce to have a yarn about how you can get involved.
