Special launch at NAIDOC Week celebrations in Minjilang

29 July 2021

NAIDOC Week celebrations in Minjilang were a great success with a fantastic event on the Friday to conclude the week. About 100 community members celebrated the very special occasion at West Arnhem Regional Council Office’s (WARC) gathering place. Special thanks was given in language and everyone took the time to think about the NAIDOC theme ‘Heal Country’.

Everyone enjoyed the barbecue, salads and fruits provided, however the most delicious meal was the kangaroo stew cooked by the famous WARC Senior Works Officer Dave who can, not only drive machinery and flick lures, he can make a mean kangaroo stew. 

The evening was made even more special with the launch of the Minjilang music video made with Wayne Glenn from SoundEd. While in Minjilang, Wayne worked with the local children to create this wonderful video which will be cherished by all community member today and into the future. All the children gathered around to see themselves on the video and joined in the countdown for the launch on YouTube at 7pm.


It is a great video and you can view it at:
