Kluge Ruhe Museum Celebrates National Aboriginal Observance Week

Posted: Updated:

The Kluge-Ruhe Art Museum celebrated NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week Friday.

Museum-goers painted their own Aboriginal flags and learned about the printmaking process. Patrons took their own block print creations home with them.

An Aboriginal musician demonstrated the traditional didgeridoo and other musical instruments to close out the event.

"Aboriginal people are Australia's first people and NAIDOC week really celebrates all of their achievements, you know the fact that they work in all different businesses and industries,” said museum director Margo Smith.

The celebration will continue Saturday with instrument demonstrations and musical performances.
