Australia Day Smoking Ceremony
Jan 26 @ 7:00 am – 8:00 am

Photo credit: Debbie Williams Photography

Smoking ceremonies are an ancient custom among Aboriginal Australians in which native plants are burnt to produce smoke and acknowledge the ancestors and pay respect to the land and sea of country. The smoke is believed to have healing and cleansing properties. On Australia Day 2019 the day will begin with a ceremony led by Senior Aboriginal leaders Major Sumner and Rosemary Wanganeen.
The aim of the ceremony is to begin the day with a sincere acknowledgment to Aboriginal people from the Adelaide region. The ceremony will entail a range of gestures of, cleansing, hope and wellbeing of our past, present and our future. The theme for this ceremony is ‘Grief and Forgiveness’ that will acknowledge all our Ancestors and Ancestry across and down the generations. A powerful speech will be delivered by Rosemary titled ‘Mourning in the Morning’. Join us in the morning to mourn and celebrate our Ancestors on Australia Day in Elder Park (Tarntanya) as well as learn about Aboriginal culture and experience this important powerful event that will leave you enlightened.

“We can’t change people’s minds, but we have a responsibility to introduce the concept of Grief and Forgiveness for all on this day.
It’s a healing process with an emotional experience. To grieve is to heal, to forgive is to empower oneself to learn about our Australian history through forgiveness.
Walk these brave vital steps with us to begin healing our country, to embrace our differences for true reconciliation between us”.
– Rosemary Wanganeen
