Two Years of Resistance
On the beautiful sunny day of the 26th of August 2021, we grounded our feet on Wangan and Jagalingou Country. We lit the sacred fire and welcomed ourselves to our ancestors through a smoking ceremony. Thus, Waddananggu- ‘The Talking’ was born!
TWO YEARS on and the sacred fire still burns!
Join us this August 25th-27th at Waddanganggu for a very special celebration!
With loads of games, activities, workshops and live performances from Gurridyla and our special guest artists. We welcome you to our yamba nani (homelands) to learn about the power and significance of First Nations’ reoccupation of land to protect Country and Culture. Ticket sales close midnight Friday 18th August! So get in quick!
Need more info, or ready to join?

I’m asking every man and woman to come to my homelands to join me and my family at Waddananggu – ‘The Talking’. Waddananggu is an evolving and multifaceted ceremony.
We have set up a stone Bora ring and ceremonial ground opposite Adani’s mine and are asserting our human rights as Wangan and Jagalingou people to practice culture.
Come to witness Waddananggu – ‘the talking’ – and stand with us to protect our human rights to practice ceremony and culture, and protect our homelands.
