The communities of Dagaragu and Kalkaridgi hold a special place in Australian history. They are where the birth of Indigenous land rights all began. Thanks to the will and determination of a man by the name of Vincent Lingiari. Who having seen the inequality he and his people suffered. Said enough is enough and lead a walk off in protest to their conditions. This would later become known as the Wave Hill Walk off. And after a ten year long struggle. They were finally given back their homeland.
The month of August is the time the communities comes together to celebrate this historic and special occasion. The 51st Anniversary of the Freedom Day Festival. Joining in the festivities was TEABBA Broadcaster DJB who made the trek out along the Buntine Highway. Through amazing and wonderful country to the spiritual home of the Gurindgi people.
