Prince Charles Receives Traditional Indigenous Welcome in Northern Territory

SYDNEY – Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, received on Monday a traditional indigenous welcome on the sacred site of Mount Nhulun on the Gove Peninsula in Australia’s Northern Territory as his tour comes to a close.

The prince was greeted with the presentation of a mulka string or feathered headpiece, and a basket known as a “bathi.”

The welcome ceremony included a “bunggul” dance performed by members of the Rirratjingu aboriginal community, according to his Clarence House Twitter account.

The prince also spent time speaking with local elders after the ceremony.

The royal, second in line to the British throne, also toured the Roy Marika Lookout to learn about the Dhimurru Indigenous Protected Area, and visited the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre, an indigenous community art center in Yirrkala. There he received a spiritual blessing where a “yidaki” (musical instrument) was blown directly at his chest, his Twitter account showed.

The prince spent day five of his tour on Sunday in Cairns attending a church service, meeting defense personnel at a naval base, visiting the Royal Flying Doctors Service, and took part in a roundtable discussion on sustainable forestry at Daintree Rainforest, his official website said.

He finished off the day watching Commonwealth Games basketball events.

On Saturday, Prince Charles flew to Vanuatu to see first-hand how the island is recovering from March 2015’s devastating Cyclone Pam, considered one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the South Pacific country.

The Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, arrived in Brisbane to open the 2018 Commonwealth Games on Wednesday, April 4.

The royal couple’s visit wraps up on Tuesday.
