Students’ activities part of Naidoc Week

The students took part in a full day of activities concerning indigenous culture, with three Aboriginal elders telling Dreamtime creation stories and re-enactments, creating bark petitions and posters and a simulated excavation.

MOMO curator Richenda Prall said the program of activities centred on the theme of ‘we value the vision’, recognising the significance of the Yirrkala Bark petitions in 1963.

The event was part of a number of educational Indigenous, historical, maritime archaeology and social history workshops held at MOMO for local schools and community groups.
