New Event: 6 - 9 June 2014: Barunga, NT
Barunga festival
"The festival benefits the community of Barunga and the
people of the region economically, socially and culturally. ...
In 1988, as the rest of Australia was celebrating 200 years
of white settlement, Barunga was the site of Aboriginal
leaders coming together, and presenting Prime Minister
Bob Hawke with the Barunga Statement. The Barunga
Statement calls for Aboriginal self-management. Bob
Hawke signed the statement in his visit to the festival,
and said he would bring it before parliament. Sadly,
he never did. Today, every aspect of the Barunga
Statement is as pertinant as the day it was written."

people to build their future around health, economics,
law and governance, and social issues."
"Why warriors takes you on an in-depth 2 day journey,

"When you look at the events which are significant to
Aboriginal people you’ll notice that their recent history
is one of a fight for rights, land and recognition.
It is also a history of sadness, loss and denial."
