For the first time in Sydney, Indigenous & Māori groups joined in ceremonial dance yesterday to honour both Indigenous and non-Indigenous service personnel.
Organisations Haka For Life and Babana Aboriginal Mens Group joined to honour the Anzacs, united in the mission of reducing suicide across Australia and highlighting those who are facing challenges in life.
Two Haka were shared:
Ngati Toa Rangatira Haka – Ka Mate
Ngati Kahungunu Haka – Tika Tonu.
“The ‘Coloured Diggers Service’ [in Redfern] is the only service of its kind in Australia that firstly honours the First Nations People of Australia and Indigenous Māori for their contribution to the protection of Australia and New Zealand, dating back to the first Boer War in 1880,” Haka for Life posted on Facebook.
Indigenous-led organisations Haka for Life and Corroboree for Life are on a shared mission to reduce suicide across Australia. Their stirring performances on Anzac Day have been capturing the world’s attention.
Unfortunately due to the WA state governments 3-day mandated lockdown beginning from 6pm tonight (Friday 23 April) our Haka performance at Kings Park on Sunday 25 April has been cancelled.
The lockdown for the Perth and Peel regions will begin at midnight tonight. Masks will be mandatory from 6pm, although the Premier Mark McGowan recommended people wear them immediately. You can find out more information on the snap lockdown from the ABC News:
Haka for Life, together with Corroboree For Life, are excited to announce that we will be returning to King’s Park for ANZAC Day, 25th April 2021, to pay tribute to our fallen Anzacs, and to honour our message of ‘Choosing Life’.
