Nauiyu Community Workshop at Daly River

Edwin Fejo and I spent 5 days on Nauiyu community in Daly River as The Youth Mill was participating in cultural music, dance and art workshop. I love conducting workshops at Nauiyu as I have wonderful connections with many of the families there and it is a wonderful part of the Northern Territory.
