Meet Dion Tatow 👋🏽 He is a an Iman and Wadja man from Central Queensland (mother's side) and South Sea Islander from Ambrim Island in Vanatuu (father's side). He is also the Regional Practice Coordinator for the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Child Protection Peak 🖤💛❤️ and one of the experts interviewed on our Stories of Hope and Healing podcast 🎙⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Dion shared some great practice insights for working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and emphasised the importance of connection 🤝 with community and culture for healing 🌱⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people are not only impacted by their own trauma stories, but also the intergenerational ➰ trauma experienced by their parents, grandparents and ancestors. ⠀
.⠀
While Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders have experienced significant violence during colonisation, their separation from land 🏞 and family has also been very traumatising.  Reconnecting young people and families is an important part in the healing process.⠀
.⠀

On our 2018 NAIDOC week Saturday we celebrate Paula and her daughter Tayah. Paula joined us in the very early stages of Bushlolly and is now one of our Duty Managers! We are so proud of her achievements!  Tayah is the motivation behind Paula’s career- “I choose to be a working mum to provide for my daughter Tayah to give her the best chances and opprtunties in life”

Just a few snippets of what’s been happening these school holidays! 
The children and I are currently celebrating NAIDOC WEEK, we begin the week with the children exploring the colours behind the aboriginal flag.
We foraged through the herb gardens and the fruit trees to discover the variety of food available, which we then picked and used for afternoon tea!

This was what all the TOP SECRET rehearsals were for 😱😆🤙🏿 ACPA dancers reigned in the @gc2018 @commgamesaus with the wonderful @bangarradancetheatre during the Opening Ceremony at Carrara Stadium last night. 
A massive congratulations to all those involved, with a special shout out to our Head of Dance @bradleychatfield who was a great support and visionary for this project. We love collaborating with such talented companies and performers including three of our fantastic ACPA alumni (Tyrel, Cody and Yolanda). And we LOVED being involved in the Opening Ceremony. Well done to all our students who performed; words can’t describe how proud we all are!

Today, at the offical @commgamesaus Multi Fatih Service, ACPA dance and music students performed an acknowledgement to country, a beautiful rendition of My Island Home, and performed a specially-made contemporary dance piece for politicians, leaders of faith, and school children. 
We are always grateful for the opportunity to share our skills and joy with our community. It was fantastic to meet with Qld Premier @annastaciamp , His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey and other distinguished guests to hear their positive words about our performances. 
Thank you for having us @commgamesaus and @stjohnscathedralbrisbane!!! _________________________________

I love the concept behind Queensland Museum's new exhibition 'This is my heritage.'
Using a combination of still images and film, Queenslanders of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island heritage tell their stories through the personal connections they have to particular objects in the museum collection. 
On now, just in time for NAIDOC Week!

The sun is shining & the stage is nearly set for what's going to be another awesome start to NAIDOC week for 2015! 
NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
If you're in Sydney today, why not come down & check out the fantastic & free NAIDOC in the Park event hosted by the City of Sydney Council in beautiful Hyde Park. 
I'm excited & honoured to be the MC for this event again!
There is plenty of fun & activities for all ages so come along & learn, participate & celebrate the oldest continuing culture on earth.
There are performances on the main stage throughout the day, workshops, tours, cooking demonstrations, dancing circle, a marketplace & a massive kids section (Taronga Zoo, Australian Museum, storytelling, traditional dancing, rock climbing, art & basketball & rugby league clinics run by the Sydney Kings & South Sydney Rabbitohs, who are bringing the NRL Premiership trophy they won last year & are allowing everyone to be photographed with it) and a catered area for the elders.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME!!
The event runs from 11am-3pm.
You can also find out what's happening in your local area by heading to www.naidoc.org.au ✌🏿️
