NAIDOC Week celebration
More than 1000 people made it down to the Roebourne High School oval for the City of Karratha’s NAIDOC Community Concert on Sunday, July 10.
City of Karratha deputy mayor John Lally said the event brought the community together to celebrate NAIDOC Week.
“The NAIDOC Community Concert was a fantastic event to be involved with, bringing people from across the city together to celebrate the culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people,” he said.
“The theme for NAIDOC Week 2016 was Songlines, the living narrative of our nation, and this concert was the embodiment of that, with incredible music and performances from some of the nation’s most talented indigenous artists.”
Punters enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment, with live music from national headliners Dan Sultan, Thelma Plum and Troy Cassar-Daley, and traditional dance performances co-ordinated by Patrick Churnside.
There were also market stalls, food vans and carnival rides and amusements.
