Community Message Stick

Pindari is always keen to be involved in initiatives, which provide opportunities for cultural exchange between Indigenous and non-Indigenous community members… initiatives that celebrate individuality, encourage respect and foster connection and support between members of the broader community.

Dilly Bags Program

Pindari is proud to support Jan Kane and her team with a ‘Dilly Bags’ program. This annual project provides homeless Indigenous people with toiletries, water bottles and Beanies to ease their hardship. This small gesture helps provides increased self-worth and pride to these individuals and in some small way, assists them towards a safer and more secure outcome. This year Derbarl Yerrigan reached out to Pindari for basic grooming kits (toiletries, lip balm, hair ties) for the Aboriginal girls of Armadale High school, which were gratefully received.

NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC week is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements. Staff members proudly represent Pindari at the NAIDOC celebrations across our work sites and employees are often honoured by being asked to take part in the Flag Raising Ceremonies. Our teams also enjoy special BBQs and love spending time with the inspirational speakers who come to the events.

Because of Her We Can

In 2018 Pindari delivered special edition ‘Because of Her We Can’ Head Socks for all Team Members. This year it was ‘Voice, Treaty, Truth’ Beanies and our sponsorship of the inaugural NAIDOC Deadly Moonlight Coming Together Ball, hosted by the City of Busselton. The Ball is the initiative of a young, local Aboriginal woman working to develop a NAIDOC week event that acknowledges the unique Aboriginal culture that exists in WA’s southwest.
