PNG Independence Day Celebrations, Logan, 2019. 44 Years since Independence.
Some photo highlights of my first ever attendance at a PNG Independence day celebration anywhere. This is at Logan in Queensland. I went with my mother and brother visiting from Tasmania, as well as family and friends.
New Britain Dancers – dusted with talcum powder from audience to give them strength.
Some of my family saying hello to Central Province Dancers – best head dresses of the day.
Dance offs, I’ll see if I can dance your style. South Pacific PNG Based family.
Kairuku Dancers from areas near where my mum is from.
With my Friend Helene who also attended.
