The Mount Isa community has celebrated Australia's traditional owners during NAIDOC Week with a family fun day.
Celebrating the traditions and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, NAIDOC Week celebrations started on Tuesday November 10 with a family fun day at the Salvation Army Recovery Service.
The event included activities such as, tree planting, painting and artwork workshops, dancing, spear throwing and bush tucker.
Mount Isa Recovery Service case manager Danica Crebbin said the day was about celebrating the indigenous culture while advertising the facility as family friendly.
"Our centre is open to anyone in the community who wants to come and utilise our services," Ms Crebbin said.
"Also for anyone to bring their children out, we do support that as well. We have family rooms and support kids to go to school and that sort of thing."
Ms Crebbin said the staff hosting the NAIDOC event were proud to celebrate culture and share it with the rest of the community.
"It is great to show everyone how the indigenous people used to survive, eat, hunt, and encouraging our clients here to get involved as well.
"It is great to see them showing pride in their centre and what they do and showcasing their talent as well.
"During these tough times with COVID-19, it has been nice to bring everyone together."
Lieutenant Natalie Steele said the Salvation Army were proud to support the day.
"It has been great to be out here today and come together to celebrate NAIDOC Week," Ms Steele said.
"Definitely agree with the message of today which is we are all brothers and sisters sharing this place together."
