The festival provides a rare opportunity for authentic cultural immersion through; hands-on workshops, demonstrations, performance and thrilling spear-throwing and fire-making contests.
Each year, the community of Ali Curung, holds a Traditional Dance Festival. Held during the NAIDOC week celebrations in July, the festival aims to embrace cultural awareness through music, song and dance.
The festival engages the community on all levels, generating cultural harmony between Indigenous locals and non-Indigenous visitors. It presents a unique opportunity to allow non-Indigenous visitors to experience bush tucker, bush medicine and Indigenous culture first-hand providing a rare opportunity for authentic cultural immersion.
Throughout the weekend there will be painting demonstrations, a traditional spear throwing competition using woomeras, artifact and jewelry making workshops and a fire making competition, using boomerangs.
The three days of activities brings Indigenous and non-Indigenous people together in friendship and understanding.
