For centuries Aboriginal people have danced on the land of Australia for all purposes of sacred
ceremonies. In turning the pages in history of Aboriginal people and their culture is that it is
ancient and is filled with over 400+ Nations and 200+ languages spoken. This unique web of
design across the whole continent is manifested with many songs and dances that tell stories of
who we are and where we come from. It gives us our identity.
Dancing on country is a respectable attribute to honour to your people and nation of which you
come from. It’s the culture within dancing that glorifies our ancestors & our creation stories. It
provides the spiritual healing of self and your environment.
Aboriginal people always have maintained the belonging to land and not land belonging to us.
Its a balance of nature and human that go hand in hand together. The Nation Dance calls on all 400+ Nations to Dance as one in time across the whole continent.
With now the modern day usage of technology we have had the opportunity to connect with each other from all over in an instant. This platform allows us to share and create unity.
There is a great trauma happening to the lands in Australia with bushfires, rivers drying up,
fracking, deforestation & protection of sacred sites. All these are rippling into community’s health
and well being on a human level and with the despair of changes from federal appointed leaders
we need to uplift ourselves within our communities from rural to costal and big cities. To enshrine the humanity and unity of people to make important changes for the sacred land.
Nation Dance hopes to encompass many traditional dancing from many Nations sharing
together. For the first time in history to dance as one in time. Planning of this has been created through social media by original post of The Message Stick Walk with attached group called
Nation Dance to have all people upload videos of the day dancing. Below are the attached links
for the Nation Dance event happening on the 1st December 2019.
