Next week is NAIDOC Week and we’ll be sharing some great resources to help you extend your learning of Bayside’s rich Indigenous history.
NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.
It’s a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Celebrate NAIDOC Week by joining Meriam chef, Nornie Bero of Mabu Mabu, as she shares her love of Australian Indigenous foods and flavours.
She’ll talk through some fantastic Indigenous ingredients and will show participants how they can incorporate Australian native fruits, herbs, spices and flavours into their own home-cooking.
We’ll be spotlighting Indigenous artist Bob Kelly and his work Chinaman’s Creek and our libraries will be sharing stories told by Indigenous authors on their Facebook.
Stay tuned to our social media over the week as we share interviews and videos to highlight our Indigenous community. There are also a variety of events being hosted for NAIDOC Week by The National Gallery of Victoria, ABC Radio and more.
We look forward to celebrating NAIDOC Week with you.
