Baldja Moort are young men who own and operate an Aboriginal traditional dance company. They perform at a number of events ranging from schools to big time companies and organisations.
"We all come from pretty disadvantaged backgrounds but lucky enough for us our culture has saved us and taken us down a different road.
We realise how privileged we are to have Nyoongar culture in our life's and also realise the responsibility being past on to us.
We know that we have to make sure our culture does not become history and that it will be kept alive a long time after we are gone as the old people have.
At Baldja Moort our aim is to make culture as strong as we can we want to include everyone and come together as one because we believe that's it's not about black or white, it's about our spirit or in Nyoongar our WEIRN.
It's time for change no more prejudice, no more racism and no more seperation lets become ONE!"
