Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Light my Fire

IMG_1451

This photo is taken at Firelighting. Firelighting is the opening ceremony to Corroboree Sydney. This is an annual event that brings together all of the aboriginal nations for a time of sharing. Sharing dance, art, music, stories and culture. Sharing ideas between the elders of the nations so they can live in harmony for the advancement of iindigenouspeople. The fire is said to be a culmination of flames from each other the nations, brought together in one vessel that will continually burn over the 11 days of events. This year indigenous people groups from other countries including the maoris from New Zealand and the First Nation Peoples from Canada were invited to join in. I am looking forward to seeing films and culture from these people groups as well this year. I was there to photograph firelighting last year too, and some of the dancers recognised me and posed for me. A good time was had by all.
