Welcome to Stories and Songs of the People Australia, a community group lead by Indigenous Elders in Australia and North America. We invite you to share in an extraordinary opportunity to contribute to the healing of relationships with ourselves, each other and the Earth. How we do things is as important, if not more so, as what we do. How do we set about addressing today’s seemingly overwhelming cultural, social and climate injustices? What can we, as common people, do to make a difference in our relationships with each other and with our environment?

Join us and hear First Nations Voices including key people from Oceti Sakowin Camp, Standing Rock about Protecting the Sacred – the air, the water and our future generations.


4pm to 8pm – Showing of Film ‘Awake’ from Standing Rock

Our visiting Native American guests include, Myron Dewey the Director of ‘Awake – A Dream from Standing Rock’ and Johnnie A., who served as the Wellbeing Initiative and Interfaith Co-ordinator at Oceti Sakowin Camp, Standing Rock, North Dakota. Myron brings film and Johnnie brings ethereal acoustic guitar, flute and storytelling.

When you support these events you make it possible for all of us to begin the long journey to both recognising and beginning the transformation needed to heal ourselves and our planet.
