Dreamtime at Caloundra City Libraries
Caloundra City Libraries will celebrate NAIDOC Week 2006 next month with colourful and informative presentations by local indigenous storyteller and didgeridoo player, Daniel Neill.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said the purpose of NAIDOC Week (originally short for National Aborigines and Islanders Day of Observance Committee) was to promote community awareness of the indigenous culture and raise appreciation and respect for people of all backgrounds.
"NAIDOC Week celebrates the survival of the indigenous culture and the contribution of indigenous Australians to the community," Cr Aldous said.
"This year's theme, Respect the Past - Believe in the Future, celebrates the history, traditions and achievements of indigenous Australians and looks towards the future with optimism and confidence."
Daniel Neill will tell the legend of Mount Coolum, incorporating painting and artefacts into his presentations in Caloundra, Beerwah and Maleny. He will also give a didgeridoo performance and offer members of the audience a chance to play too.
NAIDOC Week activities will be held at the Beerwah Library, Peachester Road, on July 3 at 2pm; Maleny Library, Coral Street, on July 4 at 10am; and Felicity Park (between Caloundra Central Library and the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery), Omrah Avenue, on July 7 at 10am. Bookings for the Beerwah and Maleny presentations are essential. The event is free and open to people of all ages.
