Despite the coronavirus restrictions, the Wata Waetnanda group is encouraging people to come together and learn about Indigenous culture to mark Reconciliation Week.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the reconciliation walks and Reconciliation Australia's work in moving towards a just and equitable nation.
Wata Waetnanda member Emily Falla hopes to engage the south-west community through a number of activities.
"This year we've had to think outside of the box in how we commemorate Reconciliation Week and with that comes the potential to reach more people," she said.
"I've definitely seen a change in people wanting to know more about our culture, embrace it and find out what this week represents for Indigenous people."
Through the Wata Waetnanda Facebook group there will be a number of short language videos presented by Uncle Locky Eccles and his daughter on basic Peek Wurrong phrases, the showing of the film Putuparri and the Rainmakers and more activities throughout the week.
Reconciliation Week begins on May 27, recognising the federal government's 1967 referendum including Indigenous Australians in the constitution and census.
The week ends on June 3, marking The High Court of Australia's 1993 passing of the Mabo case advocating for the Native Title Act 1993.
"We've come an incredibly long way in working towards a reconciled country and it's more fitting than ever to protect each other and work with our community," Mrs Falla said.
"Education is really important. Our ancestors fought really hard for us to revive our knowledge and culture and to have what we have.
"Now we need to continue their work by sharing what we can and coming together."
