Mandurah community invited to corroboree this Sunday morning as part of Nation Dance

First Nations people from across Australia will come together to take part in corroborees across the country on Sunday as part of Nation Dance, with an event to be held in Mandurah.

The community is invited to Town Beach, in front of Seashells Resort, to watch or take part in an inaugural corroboree at 10am.

These nationwide events are to celebrate a love for the land and to highlight that Indigenous culture is not only ancient and valued, but still alive and thriving.

Meryn Bennell, the organiser of the Mandurah dance event, said it was an important event.

"We want to dance to heal our land after so many bad fires and drought," he said.

"There's not been much water about lately and that's why we have picked the beach to have our event - it's do with being close to water.

"We want to give the government a message that we are all here and that we want to protect our land and help it heal."

Mr Bennell said the event was inclusive and invited everyone along.

"It's about coming together and dancing together to heal and strengthen communities," he said.
