NAIDOC Dancers come to Lockyer

2/08/2013

On Tuesday the 30th July, Lockyer was privileged to experience some amazing Indigenous dances, performed for the Junior school by the NAIDOC dancers. We were all entertained by the didgeridoo music that was played on stage and in perfect synchronisation to the dancers.

The NAIDOC dancers included students from Bremer State High School, who all took time to travel to and perform at Lockyer. The group of dancers consisted of Henry Junior, Javier, Aaron, Lakota, Lenaya and Jaylen Thompson, who come from the Yuggera Purga Descendants Dances.

This talented group have created all the original dances and music that they presented to us. The dances included: Deebing Warraell (mosquito dance), Guralbang (brown snake dance), Gurgarramganggam (kookaburra call dance) and Billara (beer dance).

The ceremonial dances captivated the Grade Eight and Nine students in attendance and we would like to thank the NAIDOC dancers for performing for us.
