In 2016, more than 1000 people enjoyed the performance put on by South Australia's traditional Aboriginal group Yellaka.

Yellaka means "Old Wisdom - New Ways". The group are proud of their heritage and foster the transfer of knowledge of the ancient Kaurna aboriginal culture to today's modern youth.

This special and free event comes to you from Australia's first people and the world's oldest indigenous cultures. The dance and smoking ceremony is a celebration of the Kaurna people's connections to the spirits of their land; their stories and their culture - it's an exciting and fascinating experience to watch and is a must see this Fringe Festival.
