Russell Dawson

At the Koomurri Entertainment 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 Entertainment 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.

National Sorry Day

National Sorry Day Sunday 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 2019

At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To foster positive race relations, our relationship must be grounded in a foundation of truth.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have long called for a comprehensive process of truth-telling about Australia’s colonial history. Our nation’s past is reflected in the present, and will continue to play out in future unless we heal historical wounds.

Today, 80 per cent of Australians believe it is important to undertake formal truth telling processes, according to the 2018 Australian Reconciliation Barometer. Australians are ready to come to terms with our history as a crucial step towards a unified future, in which we understand, value and respect each other.

Whether you’re engaging in challenging conversations or unlearning and relearning what you know, this journey requires all of us to walk together with courage. This National Reconciliation Week, we invite Australians from all backgrounds to contribute to our national movement towards a unified future.

Voice Treaty Truth

NAIDOC week July 8th to 15th 2018

We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.

The Indigenous voice of this country is over 65,000 plus years old.

They are the first words spoken on this continent. Languages that passed down lore, culture and knowledge for over millennia. They are precious to our nation.

It’s that Indigenous voice that include know-how, practices, skills and innovations - found in a wide variety of contexts, such as agricultural, scientific, technical, ecological and medicinal fields, as well as biodiversity-related knowledge. They are words connecting us to country, an understanding of country and of a people who are the oldest continuing culture on the planet.

And with 2019 being celebrated as the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages, it’s time for our knowledge to be heard through our voice.
