We are Young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women. Too often as Indigenous youth we are hearing around us that our culture isn't alive.
Identity is a massive issue faced by Indigenous Youth, we are too often questioned on our Aboriginality, face racism and are thrown into the negative statistics facing our mob
We are tired of being boxed into negative statistics
We have started a Women's Aboriginal Dance Group 'Namarilly Bagarook'
We dance to strengthen our identities, to show pride within ourselves and pride for our culture. We connect to each other through dancing each week, then when we perform we are there to show everyone that are culture is alive and our culture will stay alive throughout each generation.
