Community invited to Reconciliation Week yarning circle

Taribelang Cultural Aboriginal Corporation will host a special yarning circle as part of Reconciliation Week celebrations.

The Bundaberg community is being invited to celebrate Reconciliation Week at Innes Park for a special Taribelang Bunda Yarning Circle.

Hosted by the Taribelang Cultural Aboriginal Corporation, the event will be focused on the theme of More Than A Word, Reconciliation Takes Action.

TCAC manager Nikki Tiger said there would be plenty of activities held on the day with the opportunity for participants to learn about local history and culture.

“This is a free family and community event featuring cultural face painting, a reconciliation gift for the children, information on yarning, a tour and more,” she said.

“We will be joined from one of our Bunda elders and our partner, Billy Moorehead from Bargara Headlands, to discuss the importance of reconciliation and what it means.”

National Reconciliation Week is held from 27 May to 3 June and provides a chance for all Australians to learn about shared histories, cultures, and achievements and to explore how reconciliation can be achieved throughout Australia.

The dates for NRW remain the same each year and commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision.

The Taribelang Bunda Yarning Circle will be held at the Headland Esplanade, Innes Park from 10am to 1pm on Monday, 31 May.
