Dupang Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

22 Feb 2019 to 24 Feb 2019

The Dupang Festival brings together local, interstate and international Indigenous dancers for three days of performance and workshops at a spectacular waterfront site on the iconic Coorong.

Presented by Tal-Kin-Jeri Dance Group on Ngarrindjeri land at Long Point near Meningie, this camping festival will provide an immersive cultural experience for anyone interested in Aboriginal culture, from Friday Feb 22-Sunday Feb 24, 2019.

Tal-Kin-Jeri Director, Major ‘Moogy’ Sumner AM, says the festival is about sharing culture and healing the spirit. “We’ve been living by these waters along the Coorong and back up through the Riverlands for thousands of years. We know this country, we know its spirit and every time we perform a ceremony we wake that spirit up and it heals us,” he said.

“The last Dupang Festival was healing. People came to experience and learn about our culture, to be involved together. The story telling, the dancing, the fires, workshops, talking circles. We camped, we sang, we danced and together we went on a journey, which connected us to the spirits of this land and waters on our country”.

On behalf of the ancestors and people of this land – we are calling you to come together.
