Panel 11 – Entertainers
Today Aboriginal entertainment is a very large industry. It includes, dancers, musicians, singers, songwriters, story tellers, writers, poets, actors and footballers.
Entertainers are high profile people. Aboriginal entertainers who live and work in this region are the high profile members of a much larger community that can be seen through its entertainers. Entertainers include dancers, musicians, singers, songwriters, story tellers, writers, poets, actors, footballers and other sports people. Entertainers are also part of the fabric of a living culture. Entertainers like the story tellers of Aboriginal culture confirm and reinforce the culture. Others, like footballers who participate in mainstream culture, act as role models for assertion and self esteem in the mainstream culture.
We are still here and having fun.
