Reconciliation Week Event 2018

What an amazing Reconciliation Day at Ecoss! 

We embraced the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the Wayapa Wuurrk, and had the chance to ask Aunty Kim Wandin and Michelle many questions. 

Thanks to MCV for sponsoring Aunty Kim Wandin for a beautiful Welcome to Country. 
Thanks to Cire Services for sponsoring Michelle Atwell’s grounding Wayapa Wuurrk process.

Thanks to Muz and Aladdin for the beautiful music. 
Thanks to Joe, Ric, Derry, Leanne, Peter and Kirsten for volunteering. 
Thanks to Yarra Valley Game meats for the Crocodile, Camel and Wallaby sausages, and Joe for the Ecoss pumpkin soup.ECOSS is committed to keeping the conversation going about the current and past state of affairs of our Indigenous Custodians on who’s land we stand and reside. Whilst we understand the issues associated with Reconciliation Day, we are taking the opportunity to create public events whereby the community can come together, honour and show respect for our Indigenous brothers and sisters, aunties and uncles, children and elders both past and present.

Together with Cire Services, we bring you-

Welcome to Country by local Wurundjeri Elder- Aunty Kim Wandin.
Wayapa Wuurrk- Earth Mindfulness Meditation- how to connect to country whether you’re indigenous or not. This special process is led by local indigenous woman Michelle Atwell.
Bush Food Display, by Peter Lorback, who has very extensive knowledge on Bush Foods.
Botanical Eco Dyed Prayer Flag decorating by Vickie Basdeo of Peace Farm. These will hang as an annual prayer for all indigenous people.
Kids ochre body painting- for earthy fun for the kids.
Live Music by Muz & Aladdin and Friends
Native BBQ includes; wallaby, kangaroo and emu sausages and for the vegetarian/vegans- ECOSS home grown organic pumpkin soup and more.
As this is a community event, please feel free to volunteer, offer an appropriate activity, or performance.
