The beginnings of Planet Corroboree

The beginnings of Planet Corroboree

 

Planet Corroboree was created for many reasons. One main one is because these two boys were born. Without them Planet Corroboree would not exist. It is a story to tell (see our website for more info) Through Planet Corroboree opening in 2002 we hoped to share culture and art providing a place for artists to be honoured respectfully and financially. Back in the early days of our opening some other great things were happening in Byron Bay area and The Arts Factory had Aboriginal dancing every monday night. We would go every week and through this Yarbirri (on the clapsticks) and Kowunduh (on the didge) learnt how to count to 5 watching their uncles through song and dance. This is what they are doing in this video. Counting to five our local Bundjalung language. We were having so much fun! I was so happy, so I was laughing a lot, a little distracting....but I can't get time back to do it again as it was over 15 years ago, lol!! :)

It is exactly four weeks, 1 month, today since Kowunduh and I left our comfortable familiar life at home in Ocean Shores to explore and yumabalay/yumbalilla (travel) this Beautiful Country; to learn more about the knowledge this sacred land holds and in turn the knowledge held within ourselves.
