Every two years in mid-June almost all of the 17 Aboriginal communities in the Cape York Peninsula of Far North Queensland gather on a sacred dance ground - a bora ring - located on Western Yalanji country.
The primary purpose of the festival is for the different First Nations to duke it out in a three day dance competition, at the end of which one community will take home the prized shield. This year the shield was won by the dancers from Lockhart River.
Below is a highlight video produced by my company on behalf of the festival committee. Check it out!
