NAIDOC Week: Cherie Shares the Dreamtime Creation Story of the Galah, Accompanied by her Pet!

July 11, 2022, in Videos > Short Film, by

Cherie is a Baha’i who lives on Darug land, and in honour of NAIDOC Week, she shares the Dreamtime creation story of the galah, accompanied by her pet! 

NAIDOC Week is a national week of celebrations held across Australia every year (July 3-10) in order to honour the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme for NAIDOC Week is “Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!”.

NAIDOC Week is celebrated not only in indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life and therefore Baha’i Blog hopes to be able to make more videos like this one in order to serve as a platform to listen to, and foster conversations about the history, culture and achievements of the first nations peoples of Australia. Learn more about this initiative here: Creating a Space to Celebrate the Indigenous Peoples of Australia

The Darug people are scattered throughout much of what is modern-day Sydney. You can learn more about the Darug people here: wikipedia.org/wiki/Darug
