More than 300 people gathered at Myall Creek on Sunday to commemorate the unprovoked massacre of twenty-eight Wirrayaraay women, children and old men by a group of stockmen on Myall Creek Station in 1838.
This year's guest speaker, Professor Lisa Jackson Pulver AM, a proud Wiradjuri Koori woman, captured everyone with her words.
A short video made with funding from the NSW OEH promoting plans for establishment of an educational and cultural centre at Myall Creek was played.
Roger Knox, the 'Koori King of Country', and Kamilaroi man, shared songs to honour his people along with the Tingha and Gomeroi dancers.
Attending the day was Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall who said: "For our country to be reconciled and be as one, we must understand our past, no matter how uncomfortable."
Friends of the Myall Creek Memorial National Committee and Gwydir Shire Council organised the day's service and activities.
