The Yugambeh aboriginal dancers at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary gave a powerful performance for NAIDOC Week, celebrating the richness of native languages, on July 6. NAIDOC stands for “National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee” and is held each year to celebrate Australia’s rich indigenous culture and achievements. According to The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, in 1788 when Europeans settled, there was 250 language groups in Australia. There are now only 120.
