Smoking Ceremonies & Welcome to Country
Aboriginal Culture is one rooted in deep respect—respect for each other, for Lore and for land. Lore is a big part of our culture and everything NNTC does.
Traditionally, if mobs ever had to cross on to neighbouring lands, they would first seek permission. If granted, a ceremony would take place to grant the travellers safe passage while on their land.
Today, this practice has evolved into what we know as a Welcome to Country.
A representative of NNTC will perform a cleansing smoking ceremony and recite an appropriate Welcome to Country, to ensure the success of events held on the traditional lands of the Nari People.
