Minjil combines dance, song, rituals, costume and elaborate body decoration. Ceremonial dress varies from region to region and includes body paint, brightly coloured feathers from birds and ornamental coverings.
Our ceremonies teach particular aspects of traditional Aboriginal lore, spiritual beliefs and survival skills of our people. Minjil Artistic Director, Carl Fourmile has been sharing Aboriginal culture for over 20 years. He is recognised as a cultural ambassador for Cairns.
