Undalup NAIDOC Festival
10 July 2021Free
Get involved in NAIDOC week on Wadandi Boodja. The Undalup Association will celebrate this year’s NAIDOC week with a festival for all to participate in.
This year’s theme is ‘Heal country, heal our nation’. Healing Country means embracing First Nation’s cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia’s national heritage. That the culture and values of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders are respected equally to and the cultures and values of all Australians.
Boodja – Land, Country, Mother Earth – is our most important resource. No matter what culture or religion – all of us rely on Nala Boodja, Our Country.
“Whilst living, travelling, visiting and holidaying on Wadandi Boodja (Saltwater People’s Country) we ask that you respect the area and walk softly on the country, taking the time to listen to Boodja (Country) as she Wongi (Talks) of the Season, and leave nothing but footprints”.
Wadandi Cultural Custodian, Iszaac Webb
