Bunjils Marroun Healing Ceremony

Bunjils Marroun Healing Ceremony

Our annual Bunjils Marroun Healing Ceremony will be held at Afton Street Conservation Reserve on Tuesday, 26 January.

Council is committed to Respect (Gahgook), Recognition (Ngarngaith) and Relationships (Djerri) through Reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and we acknowledge that this day can cause pain to members of our community.

The ceremony will be held from 5-6pm and will include an Acknowledgment of History by Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung Elder Aunty Dianne Kerr, poetry read by Gunditjmara Elder Uncle Jim Berg and a performance by the Nhanbu Togip dance group.

The event is a chance for our community to learn about and experience what the day means to our Traditional Custodians and to acknowledge the past injustices to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

Bunjils Marroun reaffirms Council’s commitment to Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

The event will be delivered in line with COVID-19 guidelines, with a QR code available for check-in. View the COVIDSafe Event Checklist.
