AWARDED: 2018 South East Regional NAIDOC Week Award winners are celebrated during yesterday’s event.

THE community marched proudly in the city’s streets yesterday to mark the start of National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week, celebrating the rich history and culture of Australia’s indigenous people.

The annual raising of the flags ceremony was held at the Cave Gardens before the march from the Main Corner to Pangula Mannamurna Aboriginal Corporation.

This year’s theme “because of her, we can” acknowledges the many contributions of Aboriginal women.
