We look forward to keeping you up to date with all of our Garma Festival news and as a member you’ll be amongst the first to receive news and updates from the Yothu Yindi Foundation and special offers from time to time.
Sue Hayward, Develop East Arnhem Land, Victoria
Why Garma is important?
“Raising awareness about Indigenous Culture”.
Owen Norris, Djalu, Queensland
“To Support our culture and life style”.
Why I Pledge my support of the Yothu Yindi Foundation
"Because of your support to your culture and future generations."
Sharing My Memories of Garma
"I lived and enjoyed my experience and journey at the mens master class with Djalu and Milkay".
Ellen Michel, Victoria
"As a non indigenous person it is a welcome chance to look, listen and to hear: learn more Aboriginal Culture and what it means to be custodians of this land."
Bill Burdett, Victoria
“Garma is an excellent model which enables attendees to gain a broader and deeper knowledge of the issues involving indigenous Australians”.
My memories of Garma: “Standing in the meal queue and sitting at the communal tables, chatting to other attendees and learning of their reasons for attending Garma; Enjoying the beautiful country in which Garma is located; Participating in group activities; Enjoying excellent coffee!”
Rod Reeve, Northern Territory
My memories of Garma: “The conversations, cultural events, dancing, music, art, friendly people, great food and sensational environment.”
Kate Morgan, New South Wales
“Garma provides a platform for the voices of our Aboiriginal population, and those that want the best for them, coming together for the protection of this countries true heritage and to unite with common passion, care and love of our country and its peoples. The lessons learnt and shared have the opportunity to filter out to a broader population and bring strength to the messages. And so I can come and sit on the side of the bunggul everyday from beginning to end. Bliss.”
Patrick Forman, New South Wales
“Vital role in healing a nation sick at its core.”
Alistair Lee, South Australia
Why I pledge my support to the Yothu Yindi Foundation?
“This (Garma) festival should be on eveyones bucket list.”
Lisa Dhurrkay, Nhulunbuy Northern Territory
“I believe that Garma is important to ALL, Indigenous and non-Indigenous.”
Bianca Williams, Sydney
“Garma is an event that has the ability to change the way people think and feel about Aboriginal Australia. Set amongst the dropback of picturesque Yolngu country in the heart of East Arnhem Land, anyone fortunate enough to attend is encouraged to bring an open heart and mind. Garma will teach you and your organisations how to work better with Aboriginal people whilst also educating younger generations on actualities of our culture, righting the wrongs of fallacies that so strong amongst mainstream Australia.”
Bob Gordon, Tasmania
“It is very difficult for urban Australians to gain an appreciation of Indigenous culture and challenges without a forum like Garma where Yolngu share their culture. Challenging issues are discussed and debated in a spirit of openess and respect.”
Why I pledge my support?
“The bringing together of Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians to discuss and resolve issues is vitally important to our society. The music, company and bunggul is also great. Spending some time out of the Tasmanian winter is a bonus. ”
Michel Ellen, Victoria
“As a non indigenous person it is a welcome chance to look, listen and to hear: learn more Aboriginal Culture and what it means to be custodians of this land.”
“Yothu Yindi Foundation stands for 'Art as Medicine and Message'”
Norris Owen, Queensland
“To Support our culture and life style”
“Because of your support to your culture and future generations”
Sam Hayward, Victoria
“Raising awareness about Indigenous Culture”
Ndayisenga Clauvis, Australian Capital Territory
“Is important because is an traditional culture”
“Because I love culture”
Jackie Cesnik, Victoria
“I want to enable First Nations people to be self determined and become leaders in Australia”
“I think the objectives of the foundation are encouraging young Aboriginal Australians”
