Event Description

From the Land of Yarrabah in Far North Queensland, Australia, we share with you the calling to be with us in Spirit and be a part of the Global Elders Gathering that will be held from the 10th - 15th November 2012. Coinciding with the total solar eclipse on November 14th 2012, we are honoured to help facilitate a 5 day Gathering for Elders, Cultural Leaders, Youth Leaders, NGO’s, Change Agents, Industry leaders and community workers to come together and share their vision for a new future.

Modern society is currently facing a time where it needs guidance from the Indigenous peoples of this earth. The younger generations need guidance. We have global problems that are affecting our lives and that of the planet. People are ready to listen. It is time to unite the intellect of the mind and the wisdom of the heart. The Land is calling us all.

We believe by connecting with Indigenous cultures we can restore balance to our society.

The Indigenous people of Australia have an integral part to play. We have one of the oldest cultures on earth. This is an opportunity for Indigenous Culture and the unbroken connection to the Land to be acknowledged, appreciated and learned from.

This will be a time to honour and respect the ancestors and elders that have kept the culture alive, present in our young ones and active in our hearts and lives.

We were deeply moved to discover that an Ancient Storyline belonging to Yarrabah Land links directly to the total Solar Eclipse happening this year on November the 14th; “Nganjal (sister sun) had the brightest light. Gindan (sister moon) had no light when she rose each night. One morning, Gindan (moon) came up and moved in front of Nganjal (sun) and said ‘Sister, give me some light so I can shine for the people that are going to come from the east.’ From that day on there was always light. This eclipse is very significant for 

us because we are going to share this happening again; we can see it.. Gidan will come in front of Ngangal to bring the light.” Binyarabi - Yarrabah elder.

It is therefore, on behalf of the Land, the Custodians, Storykeepers, Traditional Owners, Elders and Youth of Yarrabah, that we would like to invite you, as Elders, Grandmothers, Grandfathers, Wisdom Keepers, Cultural Leaders, NGO’s, Industry Leaders, Community Workers and Change Agents to be part of the Global Elders Gathering in Yarrabah, Australia.

Focus of the Gathering:

Create a space to honour and acknowledge the Story of the Land in Yarrabah that foretold of this Gathering during the Solar Eclipse

Create an open space to honour Earth based Cultures from Australia and around the world in which Song, Dance, Story and Wisdom are shared. To respect the ancestors who have continued to “sing the new songs, dance the new dances and bring the tribes together”                                          

To create a space for young people to connect with Elders and cultural leaders so they may deepen their understanding and appreciation of Traditional ways and knowing

Create a space to connect indigenous nations with NGO’s, philanthropists, fundraisers, captains of industry and community development workers to bring into being
sustainable solutions, together, for the many issues of our time

Create the first chapter of a Digital Message Stick from Indigenous Nations exploring solutions to problems facing the planet and humanity
