Last week, our employees in the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales, the Australia Capital Territory, Victoria and Western Australia have participated in activities that support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and celebrate their cultures.
In Darwin, our colleagues at Buslink NT joined with their friends at the Clontarf Academy for end of term activities before the official start to NAIDOC Week.
Buslink joined Deadly Enterprises and sponsors for the Deadly Cup Rugby League Carnival welcome day in Darwin, meeting around 100 young players, coaches, and their families in the lead up to the carnival.
Darwin employees were also immersed in a NAIDOC Week awareness morning at Buslink’s Berrimah Depot, where they heard important cultural messages from a Larrakia Nation elder and healer and witnessed a smoking ceremony and didgeridoo musical performances.
Buslink NT’s community engagement manager, Colin Majid shares his story of growing up on Thursday Island and his passion to ensure that the culture is kept alive.
Indigenous employees at CDC NSW and CDC Gladstone shared what NAIDOC Week means to them and how their culture has shaped their identities.
In Mildura, staff and the community came together this week for a healing ceremony performed by Uncle Norm Tinawin Wilson and Aboriginal Ranger Greg Laurie of the First People of the Millewa-Mallee Aboriginal Corporation.
In NSW, the team at CDC NSW participated in a truth-telling and healing session with our community partner, Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation.
