Leon and Josiah are keeping their culture alive
PROUD Aboriginal brothers Leon and Josiah gave St. Anthony's school a taste of their traditions and culture yesterday.
The two boys were among 30 Aboriginal and Torres Strait students who took centre stage to demonstrate what they had learnt through the school's new cultural program.
The indigenous showcase saw the students play the digeridoo and perform traditional dances in ceremonial dress.
Leon and Josiah were both proud to be painted up traditionally for the performance and were eager to share their culture with others.
Leon, 11, said the main reason he loved sharing his heritage with his school was because he loved seeing how much happiness it brought to those who watched.
"I love to dance and play the digeridoo because people are happy when we do it and it makes them smile," he said.
