Jellurgal Cultural Centre
Jellurgal Aboriginal Cultural Centre offers us an amazing and accurate insight into the spirituality and society of the Yugambeh Aboriginal people, one of the oldest living cultures in the world.
The 'welcome to our country' ceremony is a small, formal ceremony where traditional owners, usually elders, welcome people to their land. It involves a speech made in Aboriginal dialect, translated for those in attendance, to show respect to the traditional custodians of the land.
At this ceremony, the traditional owners give their blessing to the event taking place on the land. How this ceremony is best conducted may vary according to the location of the event and the traditional practices of the Aboriginal community.
There will be dance performances, including corroborees, dreamtime stories, didgeridoo music and songs, a mesmerising and inspirational showcase of Aboriginal culture and heritage.
