Russell Dawson

At Koomurri we believe in sharing our aboriginal culture with all Australians and international guests. Every time we bring our indigenous teachings to a school, conference or an event, I find it spiritually uplifting to see how our performance and our culture affects people and the enjoyment it brings to their faces. I am so proud of the Koomurri cultural dance troupe and the dedication they bring to every performance and workshop.

On behalf of all the Koomurri performers I thank you for stopping by and look forward to working with you in the near future. Remember the past, live today and dream for the future. Be apart of the Dreaming, to be apart of the healing. Live and share our Australian aboriginal culture.

Brrrrr.. Russell Dawson - Koomurri Cultural Advisor

National Sorry Day

National Sorry Day 26th May

On our pathway towards reconciliation, Sorry Day on 26 May is an important moment to remember the past policies of forced child removal.

Here, we reflect on the sad and painful history of the Stolen Generations and recognise moments of resilience, healing and the power of saying Sorry. For many members of the Stolen Generations and the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, Sorry Day is official recognition of a dark history of forced removal that was, for a long time, denied.

Healing will take the reconciliation of all Australians of all backgrounds and Koomurri can facilitate Welcome To Countries, Smoking Ceremonies and other ceremony to help Australians come together to commemorate Sorry Day.

Reconcilliation Week 2017

Reconcilliation Week May 27th - June 3rd 2018

Each year Koomurri celebrates National Reconciliation Week and builds on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians.

May 27th marks the anniversary of the 1967 referendum saw over 90 per cent of Australians vote to give the Commonwealth the power to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and recognise them in the national census.

June 3rd Commemorates the High Court of Australia’s landmark Mabo decision in 1992, which legally recognised that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have a special relationship to the land, a relationship that existed prior to colonisation and still exists today.

Get Involved throughout the week by booking aboriginal ceremony, dance, workshops and enjoy our cultural experiences.

Our Language Matters

NAIDOC week July 8th to 15th 2018

NAIDOC Week 2018 will celebrate the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make - to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation.

As pillars of our society, as leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women fought and continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate our culture, language, music and art.

Koomurri are proud to work with Australia's most talented women elders and dancers to perform ceremony on NAIDOC week. We will also have our amazing men ready to perform and play didgeridoo at your NAIDOC event.
