Rirratjingu Ceremonial Program
The Rirratjingu Aboriginal Corporation provides it members the opportunity to celebrate their culture through its Ceremonial Program. The Rirratjingu Clan have developed a niche market as custodians and Traditional Owners of Nhulunbuy Township and are often called on to celebrate their ownership through Bunggul.
In 2016 the Clan performed bunggul on the steps of Parliament House to bring attention to the impact that the Corporation bought to Yirrkala Community by helping, with other stakeholders, reduce family violence by 27.9%. There was bi-partisan support from all parties to address Domestic and Family Violence.
Royal Visit 2018
The Rirratjingu Clan had the honour of performing Bunggul for HRH The Prince of Wales during his royal visit to Australia. The clan stole the limelight as they celebrated culture at the significant Mt Nhulun.
The Rirratjingu have performed Bunggul at Learning on Country Program, Indigenous Family Violence Policing Conference, Nhulunbuy Australia Day Celebrations, Parliament House Canberra, National Indigenous Music Awards amongst a host of further events.
