Yow Bukmak! (Hello Everyone)
ARDS Yolŋu Radio would like to invite all Aboriginal Corporations and Yolŋu; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders; actually we’re inviting EVERYONE! to take part in the Nhulunbuy NAIDOC Day, Yolŋu Bapurru-wu on the 8th July at Hindle Oval from midday until a bit after sunset.
We are inviting all people and clans and Aboriginal Organisations to participate, either through dance, bands, sharing a story or running a market stall or engagement activity or volunteering to put on the event.
It might not be massive this year but it will be what we all make it together. Lets come together, Yolŋu ga Balanda to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Culture.
The NAIDOC theme this year is ‘Our Languages Matter’.
Broadcast LIVE on Yolngu Radio! Jumping Castle for the Kiddies, GAFL on the Oval next door 2pm-6pm.

ARDS will bring our big sound system and will broadcast the days activities live on Yolngu Radio. We already have tents and chairs and the use of the Hindle Oval and stage from Nhulunbuy Corporation, and we will have the LED screen and Jumping Castle from East Arnhem Regional Council. You could choose to sponsor a band or run a stall or whatever your idea may be that fits with the purpose of this community cultural celebration!
So please reply ASAP with your involvement big or small, attach your logo and lets make it happen!
