NAIDOC Week Celebrations

Nexus celebrated the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples during NAIDOC Week July 4-11th 2021.

We hosted tree planting ceremonies at our Broadford Site on Taungurung land and our Wallan site on Wurundjeri land. By planting the native bottle brush of Koori Country, these ceremonies symbolised this year’s theme ‘Heal Country’ and our ongoing commitment to cultural competency.

Thank you to Taungurung Elder Uncle Mick for the Welcome to Country at our Broadford ceremony. We were also joined by Taungurung Elder Aunty Jo, community including Ferguson Street Kindergarten and Early Leaning Centre, and organisational partners, including Taungurung Land and Waters Council, Mitchell Shire Council and Victoria Police.
