for Anzac Reconciliation Dance @ Anzac

Uncle Ned Hargarves is an elder from Yuendumu and has come to Canberra for the Frontier Wars Story Camp which is currently in session at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy. He is the maternal uncle of convenor of the Camp, Chris "Pelltharre" Tomlins.

Uncle Ned is offering to teach and paint up a bunch of men (it's a men only dance), Aboriginal and non, to do a 'Reconciliation Dance' at the Australian War Memorial on Anzac Day.

Inside the AMW if they are not turned away by the RSL and ACT police, outside in Anzac Parade if not.

"I will teach the dance if I have at least ten men who will stand up and be counted for reconciliation in this time,'" said Ned.

Such men are invited to turn up for the first rehearsal at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy at 2 pm on Saturday 21 April.

Uncle Ned arrived came to Canberra via the Easter Confest near Mullamein.
