The third annual Seymour NAIDOC Week event was held at Lions Park last week.
It had been six weeks in the planning, in association with Mitchell Shire Council, with sponsorship from the Closing the Health Gap Lower Hume Project and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
More than 50 people came to the park for a host of activities including music, cultural workshops, stalls and even some barbecued kangaroo for lunch.
Uncle Larry led the way with the Welcome to Country while Aunty Alice Solomon took the music workshops.
The event was organised by the Seymour Local Indigenous Network, and the committee was delighted with the way the day went.
It was the biggest of the NAIDOC Week events it has held so far and was an opportunity for the group to outline the various things it does.
