Wayne Thorpe is an indigenous dancer and Gum Leaf player. He also leads an Aboriginal dance group displaying many traditional ceremonies like the Smoking Ceremony. Green leaves from plants used by the group that conducts it are placed on a small fire. The smoke is used to cover the participants’ bodies, ridding them of what is not needed. Reasons for holding the rite are then discussed. The ceremony ends with entertainment, such as dancing and singing. Wayne leads this group and apart from being a talented gum leaf player is available for indigenous dance displays. Ph 03 94973227
