Invasion Day Rally
This is an independently organised event that Noongar Radio will be live streaming.
"Come and join us January 26th as we gather to speak about the true history of Australia day or invasion/survival day as we call it. At 2pm we will rally through the streets of Perth. Emceed by Megan Krakouer and Mervyn Eades with a variety of speakers and an appearance by Delly Stokes and Yabu band."
Noongar Radio will be streaming parts of the rally and march live on Facebook for those who can't make it.
Celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island cultures, the annual Birak Concert boasts a stellar line up of indigenous entertainment.
Birak is the Nyoongar season for the hot and dry months of December and January; during this time the Moodjar trees flowers bright orange and are known as the Nyoongar Christmas Trees. In local dreaming, it is said that when a Nyoongar person passes away their spirit enters the tree where they wait for Birak. When the tree flowers, their spirit goes west over Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) to be with their ancestors.
This year’s line-up features WA talent, including a traditional Welcome to Country, Lilly Gogos, Flewnt, Pipeline Band and more! In addition to the jam-packed stage schedule there will be community stalls, the Elders Marquee and Perth Heat is returning for those sport enthusiasts.
Hosted by Phil Walley-Stack from Walleystack International, the event will kick off at 3pm and run through to 7.30pm and is the perfect opportunity for all Australians to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. If you are unable to make it on the day, the event will be broadcast by Noongar Radio.
