We are just remembering back to 2019 when the Broome community celebrated the Kullarri NAIDOC Festival and Mayi Harvests Native Foods won the NAIDOC lifetime contribution to culture and heritage award. With over 40 years of hard work and dedication to community, language, culture and of course bush foods development over the years.
"Our knowledge on native foods and bush medicine has been a life long commitment".
Mayi Harvests Native foods has been involved in the community well over 40 years. This award was a wonderful acknowledgement towards small Indigenous business and the people that are educating the native foods industry as we move into 2021.
" Reflection and acknowledgement of our past to create a better understanding and an educated future".
