Indigenous Cultures Rainbow Serpent Festival 20th Anniversary 2017

The Rainbow Serpent Festival celebrates 20 years on Dja Dja Wrrung and Wadawurrung country and pays respects to First Nations’ owners.

As written and seen on NITV

The end of January 2017 marked the 20th Anniversary of the annual Rainbow Serpent Festival held on Dja Dja Wurrung and Wadawurrung country, Western Victoria.

What was once a small gathering in a secluded clearing, the festival is now an internationally recognized weekend of music, culture, art and dance. While the festival has a reputation for dance music, it is rapidly gaining a name for its spiritual and cultural education, with Indigenous Peoples and culture playing a large role in the program. Indigenous Australians make-up a large number of the festival’s participants.

The Karrung Larr (Bark Hut Camp) is a space for workshops, ceremony and workshops. This year welcomed Indigenous people from across the world, including Hoksila Lakota U.S representation and Te Hononga O Nga Iwi tribe members from New Zealand.
