NAIDOC Week 2021 Community Storybook

30 July, 2021-7 August, 2021

In celebration of NAIDOC Week 2021, Wanneroo Central proudly partnered with author, Warrawu - Maree Yoelu (McCarthy), a Wadjigany woman from the western Wagait region of the Northern Territories and talented students from local schools to create a Community Storybook, celebrating this year’s topic “Heal Country”.

The storybook Dancing For Country is about Nana Ruby and her shadow, her Grandson Claude, and their relationship with the land and their desire to help heal country when they see the land is hurting.

Throughout the July School Holidays, we invited you, our much-loved community, to have your say and vote on your favourite of 60 illustrations created by local student artists to be featured in the community storybook. We received overwhelming support with 1400 votes over the two-week period and thank all the talented student artists who contributed illustrations.
