The first major event for the month was NAIDOC Week which took place from 7-14 July, and on each day the team introduced cultural activities. Following NAIDOC Week, there were plenty of other school holiday activities to keep the young people amused including an art competition for the youth, which involved drawing sketching, and colouring in (pictured). This activity took place in the afternoon and all participants were given treats including chocolates. The purpose of this event was to encourage the children to take part in art as its a big part of indigenous culture and goes hand in hand with dreamtime stories. The children were given an object to draw such as their totems or a native animal and they explained the meaning of them. A cooking activity was also held and the children had the opportunity to prepare a cultural dish of kangaroo tail, with the assistance of community members. This event was very successful and many kids were eager to get involved in this activity, which included the meat being cooked in the ground. Other activities held during the holidays including a cultural movie, a community barbecue, football and basketball in the lead up to the Kurrung Sports Carnival.
