Mile­stones

Canning Times - - NEWS -

THE Kent Street Weir came alive with the sounds of the didgeri­doo and Noon­gar cul­ture to cel­e­brate sev­eral ma­jor mile­stones. An event, staged in col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Sis­ter Kate’s Home Kids Abo­rig­i­nal Cor­po­ra­tion and the City of Can­ning, cel­e­brated Sis­ter Kate’s 10th an­niver­sary and launched the cor­po­ra­tion’s oral his­tory and the City’s rec­on­cil­i­a­tion plan. The gath­er­ing started with a per­for­mance by the Mun­gart Yonga Cul­tural Group and also fea­tured cul­tural tool mak­ing, wild­flower heal­ing and a com­mu­nity art project. Sis­ter Kate’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Tjalaminu Mia said the event was the per­fect way to recog­nise the three mile­stones. She said the gath­er­ing cel­e­brated the cul­ture of Indige­nous peo­ple and fam­i­lies with the wider com­mu­nity. Have a mile­stone? Tell us at: can­ning­[email protected]­mu­ni­tynews.com.au
