Sunday saw the opening of NAIDOC week in Fremantle. A ceremony to celebrate it was held on the grass next to the Round House, a building with sad memories for many Noongars. A welcome to country was given by Curtin Academic Len Collard culminating in Len giving Cr Sam Wainwright a message stick to take back to council. Sam gave one of the best speeches I have heard, it was poignant and from the heart, thanks Sam and thanks Len.
There was a flag raising ceremony, dancing and very popular sausage sizzle. Apparently Council also organised a break in the weather so we got some sunshine.
