WARWICK has gathered together to celebrate important figures in the indigenous community in honour of NAIDOC Week.

About 30 people attended the Waringh Waringh elders morning tea at Williams Hall at the Uniting Church Warwick-Killarney parish this morning.

 

Delphine Charles gave a welcome to country before mayor Tracy Dobie spoke about the decision-making roles women take on both in the home and in the professional arena.

Music entertained those gathered throughout the morning, as they acknowledged this year's NAIDOC Week theme of 'Because of her, we can!'
