> On Thursday 14 May at 10.50am in Gordon Square (NR EUSTON WC1E) there will be a
> smoking ceremony to mark the repatriation of Australian Indigenous
> Human Remains. The remains have been held at the Institute since
> their transfer from a Cheshire auction house. Mr Major Sumner and
> Mr George Trevorrow (both Ngarrindjeri community members) will be
> officiating. During the smoking ceremony a small amount of
> eucalyptus leaves contained within a small bowl are lit; once the
> eucalyptus is smoking the small flames are blown out and the leaves
> smoulder for about 10 mins (which creates the smoke affect). The
> community representative undertaking the ceremony will then walk
> around with the bowl of smouldering eucalyptus leaves fanning the
> smoke on those participating in the ceremony.
>
> All welcome

> With best wishes
