New South Wales, Sydney and Blue Mountains
From the rich storytelling traditions of Aboriginal NSW, we shine a light on strength, resilience and artistry of Aboriginal women, men, youth and dance culture today. The name Jannawi means ‘with me, with you’ in the Darug language of NSW. Jannawi has a passion and are dedicated to continue and revitalize Sydney’s language culture and stories. Our work involves performing traditional ceremonies, welcome to country dances, contemporary dance, music festivals, community and corporate events, educational school shows and workshops for early childhood, primary, high school and teaching in communities. We practice, perform and teach to inspire other indigenous people to practice cultural values and identities. We are proud and show our commitment to our culture, bringing honour and shared knowledge, encouraging awareness and understanding of the world’s oldest living indigenous culture.
