National Reconciliation Week 2021 is on until the 3rd of June. The theme for this year is “More than a Word”. Bec had a chat to Len Yarran about the Wadjak Northside Aboriginal Community Group’s community Reconciliation event that is happening this Wednesday, 2nd June.
Len is a Wadjak Noongar elder who has worked extensively in education, and devoted much of his time and energy in assisting the local indigenous community. He is also the co chair of Wadjak Northside – a resource centre and community group dedicated to improving indigenous lives.
This event is going to be at the Bina Parkland to celebrate Reconciliation. They will be learning and sharing their cultural history through having different activities. The activities that will be available are:
- Six Seasons Tour
- Basket Weaving
- Art activities
- Tool making
Len is encouraging everyone in the community to come along to this event! If you would love to come along and celebrate Reconciliation week then why don’t you head along!
It is important to foster Reconciliation to make people understand. We need to talk with empathy and understanding.
“We can heal the past with reconciliation” – Len Yarran
