Sunday 9th July at 12 noon
Borthwick Park, Thornton Street, Kensington

The Kensington Residents’ Association is excited to be hosting a Kaurna Cultural Ceremony in Borthwick Park during NAIDOC Week 2023 to honour the deep time culture, language, wisdom and knowledge of this beautiful place.

Kaurna, Narungga and Wirangu man Jack Kanya Buckskin (pictured left) will be conducting a Welcome to Country and Cleansing Ceremony. During the short but significant ceremony the assembled people and the place will be cleansed with smoke and song.

The ceremony will go ahead rain, hail or shine so dress appropriately for the weather.

Join us for shared community lunch afterwards. The KRA committee will provide a barbeque lunch with a veggie option.

Please bring along:

  • a piece of foliage or flowers from your garden to create a community bouquet, and
  • a cup or mug if you would like to try some bush tea.

Ngaityalya (thanks) to Foundation SA for generously supporting this significant community event, to Jack Buckskin and Kuma Kaaru Cultural Services for walking together with us, and to Trish Hansen for envisioning this day.

Nakutha (see you soon).
