Community dives into NAIDOC Week: PHOTOS

The Eden community jumped right into the spirit of NAIDOC Week on Wednesday, with the Jigamy Aboriginal Keeping Place transformed into a hub of activity as part of a community fun day, run by the Eden Aboriginal Land Council and Twofold Aboriginal Corporation.

Boomerang decorating, a jumping castle and balloon art proved highlights for the younger visitors, while the older generations took the chance to enjoy a cuppa and a chat, with damper and a sausage sizzle also provided.

A range of other activities were on offer at different stages of the day, including indigenous games, face painting, basket weaving, and exhibitions in the Keeping Place.

Pastor Ossie Cruise said the day was a great opportunity to develop a communal spirit among locals of all background, and to share in Aboriginal culture.
