Wadawurrung people share culture with locals
SOME of the Wadawurrung people recently held a gathering at Point Addis to share their heritage with people from the Indigenous community, the Torquay Lions and some other interested locals.
Wadawurrung man Jordan Edwards, who was awarded Mr NAIDOC in 2016, then spoke about community culture. He had a variety of artefacts such as boomerangs, shields and spears that he talked to attendees about before leading a walk on the country.
“The Wadawurrung people were extremely welcoming and shared wonderful insights into their local culture and just how much country means to them.
“It was a pleasure for us to support the event.”
The Point Addis walking path has a series of signs on which people can learn more about the area’ s Indigenous heritage.
