We are honoured to share this special event on Noongar Boodja with you all. This is an open invitation for ALL community members to attend.
We are passionate about Indigenous Aboriginal Torres Strait Island & Māori cultures being powerfully included in ANZAC Day memorials, through Corroberee & Haka expression.
Please join us, and a number of guests at this unique West Australian ANZAC Day Service, that powerfully acknowledges Australia & New Zealand, and their Indigenous Cultures.
We are so grateful to have Senator Dorinda Cox- Yamatji – Noongar woman, the first ever Indigenous woman in the West Australian senate and ex-service woman, speaking at Ngarla Maumahara- Our Remembrance, Indigenous ANZAC Day Service tomorrow.
We are grateful to have RSLWA State President Mr Duncan Anderson as a speaker. Mr Anderson’s presence and support of our Indigenous ANZAC Service, is a very significant acknowledgement from RSLWA of Indigenous inclusion on ANZAC Day, and the inclusion of ALL those whom have served, as State President, he is very driven by inclusion.
Reminder that our service starts at 1pm tomorrow, Supreme Court Gardens, Perth.
