Mallee Accommodation & Support Program (MASP) proudly joined the vibrant celebrations of NAIDOC Week to honour and celebrate the rich culture, history, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Last Friday, the MASP team headed to the Mallee District Aboriginal Services (MDAS) to participate in a flag-raising ceremony, marking the beginning of a week filled with meaningful activities.
Following the flag-raising, we marched through Mildura’s streets, culminating in a community event at Jaycee Park, where we stood alongside many other local organisations.
MASP’s participation was the presence of the Red Earth Heart Van, a testament to their dedication to providing essential support and accommodation services to those in need.
This year’s NAIDOC Week theme, “For Our Elders,” resonated deeply with us as MASP is developing our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
This plan signifies MASP’s ongoing journey toward fostering meaningful relationships, promoting cultural understanding, and actively participating in reconciliation.
MASP deeply honours and celebrates the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and is committed to sharing and promoting cultural awareness, understanding, and inclusivity. We are committed to paving the way for reconciliation, fostering meaningful connections, and celebrating the rich cultural heritage of Australia’s First Nations peoples, and we encourage everyone to join us.
