NAIDOC celebrations began Tuesday 4 July 2023 at the front of the Shire Office. Robbie Miniter opened the flag raising ceremony and spoke on behalf of the Noongar  Elders and Goreng people. Robbie then played the didgeridoo as Melita, Sharon, Donna, Chiara and Sarah raised the Aboriginal flag. Everybody was welcomed into the Shire for coffee after the ceremony


Later that day, the Community Resource Center hosted a Native Plants Information Session and morning tea, where the public where able to look at native plants and read about their uses; for example in food or medicine.  Melita spoke about the plants and displayed the sign that will be mounted on the tractor near where the plants will be planted on Thursday.


On Behalf of the Shire and Community Resource Center we would like to thank Robbie, Aboriginal Elders and all who came along to participate.
