We started the last day with a Ted Talk video on community. Shani Graham says everybody craves being connected. Its like being insured by your community.
Yvonne Daddow, the Senior Aboriginal Liaison Officer of Western Power in West Australia shared her painful story of reconciliation and cultural awareness in community building. The stages of the reconciliation plan are reflect, innovate, stretch and elevate. Culture is ancestral, formative, instinctive or innate, evolutionary and subjective or contextual. The conflict is between culture and personality.
Thursday evening we had our cultural evening where countries wear their traditional attire and render a traditional item. We danced to Mirriam Makeba song Pata Pata. As usual the South Africans were in demand for photos with our beautiful attire.
