More than a hundred children have come together to celebrate the end of NAIDOC Week with a dance party in Eaglehawk.
Bendigo and District Aboriginal Co-operative project manager Stacey Bennett said the night, which BDAC organised with Blue Light, was great fun for everyone.
"There was a great turnout and everyone had a lot of fun even if it was a bit cold," she said. "It was mainly to give the youth the opportunity to celebrate NAIDOC week.
"The week is growing every year and people get quite excited about it."
Children aged between six and 18 enjoyed the dancing led by national group, Indigenous Hip Hop Projects.
"They are very inspiring," Ms Bennett said. "It was great for the youth to listen to their message that it's important to stay connected to culture and to find out more about Indigenous heritage.
"All of the kids loved the group and were up dancing. Even the adults joined in."
Ms Bennett said the youth event capped off a great NAIDOC Week.
"It's great to see that it is so accepted," she said. "There were a lot of local businesses and community organisations that were hugely involved with a lot of different events.
"It was a very positive week."
