    The annual NAIDOC Week events hold

    great importance for the Newman

    community, BHP Billiton Iron Ore

    and stakeholders.

    NAIDOC originally stood for National Aborigines

    and Islanders Day Observance Committee, who

    were once responsible for organising national

    activities during the week of celebrations. Its

    acronym has since become the name of the week

    itself. NAIDOC Week was held from 7 14 July to

    celebrate and acknowledge achievements and

    successes of Indigenous Australians, whilst also

    recognising and promoting awareness within

    Australia of Indigenous Culture.

    Celebrations began on 1 July with activities

    at Newman schools and in the community.

    Schools hosted Aboriginal performer Phillip

    Walley Stack throughout the week where he

    shared his own cultural knowledge and

    performed traditional dances. The week

    ended with the releasing of balloons at various

    locations across Newman that represented

    the colours of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait

    Islander flags. Community and various

    organisations participated, enjoying a number

    of activities and events including a BBQ and art

    sessions in Kiriprina Park.

    The closing ceremony at the Recreation

    Centre featured special guest MC Kelton Pell,

    a well-known Aboriginal actor and director, and

    Port Hedland based band, The Bad Influence.

    BHP Billiton held celebrations at Mt Whaleback

    and Eastern Ridge, with employees raising the

    Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flags, and

    BBQs providing an opportunity for employees

    to get together.

    BHP Billiton proudly supports NAIDOC and

    recognises the importance of positive engagement

    programs with Aboriginal and Torres Strait

    Islander communities and employees. The

    BHP Billiton Iron Ore Reconciliation Action Plan

    2013-2015 is utilised across the business.

    of Newman, was a chance discovery by Arthur Hickman, a government

    geologist, in July 2007, while browsing Google Earth. The crater is about 260 metres wide and 30 metres deep and is thought to be somewhere between

    10,000 and 100,000 years old.

    --- Hip Hop Hooray! ---

    The Newman Dance Crew with Luisa Latai, inset, and choreographers Tahlia Hunter and Kah Mojado Dante.

    Hip hop is a great way of getting young people to shine, bringing their leadership skills to the fore.

    The Hip Hop Alliance was formed at the end of 2012 to create a safe, fun and inclusive environment in which to learn and teach Hip Hop - just one of many avenues to get youth engaged and participating with community and interacting with their peers.

    The Hood from Port Hedland and Bboy worked together mentoring approximately 20 Newman youngsters. They struck a chord with a small group who have maintained regular practise sessions. The Hip Hop enthusiasts aged 12-18 years have been training seven days a week, putting their heart and soul into perfecting their skills. One of the highlights was having the first flash mob ever seen in Newman Shopping Centre!

    Their long-term commitment paid off as they immersed themselves in a weekend workshop organised by the

    Newman Youth Centre. Two Perth-based choreographers from Fyah Dance Complex worked with the youngsters. They learned a special NAIDOC Week routine and threw themselves into an intense program that included boot

    camp fitness sessions and muscle isolation activities.

    Luisa Latai, Coordinator of Youth Services at the Youth Centre said, Hip Hop is about having respect for others and

    spreading positive messages. The daily dedication of these young people show theyre passionate and are likely to be excellent role models, teaching these skills to their peers.
