NAIDOC Week and more

I write this at the tail end of what has been a wonderful week of celebration and commemoration. NAIDOC Week has seen many extraordinary indigenous musicians, artists, chefs and sportsmen performing across the country and it’s been a honour for Big Sky to be involved. We have also had the wonderful Allysha Cleemans duo and Michelle Smith Harpist performing at a McDonald’s VIP function last Monday night and tonight will see the talented accordionist Eddie Staszak perform for a private event. On Tuesday, Olman Walley, son of Richard Walley performed at a WA Mine site VIP function- an accomplished musician and speaker. Clayton Donovan, an indigenous chef from QLD joined the mines to give a wonderful food demonstration and tasting on Friday and Saturday joined by Danny Marr, a member of Fitzroy Xpress band from Fitzroy Crossing.
On Saturday David Wirrpanda ran a footy clinic at the mine site and Troy Cook, also of band Fitzroy Xpress joined him. It’s been a memorable week for all.
