Smoking Ceremonies – Burt Ngarrgi
‘We do smoking ceremonies to cleanse the land we are on and to cleanse the body of bad spirits, this opens the body to take in good spirits. The ceremony will allow you to enter Taungurung Country and you will be protected by our Ancestors. Please take care of our country and it will take care of you.’
