Sunrise at the Red Centre - Uluru

Aboriginal Acacia Prison dancers had their audience captivated during their performance at a Naidoc Week event | inMyCommunity

AFTER a year of rehearsals, eight Aboriginal Acacia Prison dancers had their audience captivated during their performance at a Naidoc Week event this week.Guests braved the blustery winds and heavy downpour and were led to the prison gymnasium on Monday for the presentation, and were greeted with a small Acacia Prison Naidoc Week pin.The presentation began with a couple of songs by a trio of prisoners on electric and acoustic guitars and keyboard.The dancers, with their faces and bodies painted, performed five dances, each telling a different story about Australia wildlife and Aboriginal culture.The audience watched in respectful silence throughout the presentation and applauded at the conclusion of each dance, but it was the moving speeches by guests Unity of First Peoples Marion Kickett and her daughter Tanya Williams that tugged on the heartstrings. 9 more words
