Organisers from the Anaiwan Nation presented "Darigari Njinga Nyami", one of their creation dances, at Armidale Aboriginal Community Garden as part of the Nation Dance in Sunday, December 1.
The dance was held as part of a historic national gathering of First Nation people, who came together across Australia to participate in ceremony, healing and dance on country as one.
Organiser Jill Ahoy said the national coordinator of the event recently visited Armidale.
"One of our Brother boys from up in Cairns, Alwyn Doolan, he did a message stick walk from Cairns to Canberra," Jill said.
"He came through Armidale, and people from our community met him.
"He put a video up on Facebook and said wouldn't it be wonderful if all the Aboriginal people of Australia came together at the same time and posted it live on Facebook."
From the 60 communities involved nationally, Armidale was one of those lucky ones to get a little rain during the afternoon, but it was not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of the dancers nor the spirits of about 200 people who attended.
Dallas Ramage said the spiritual purpose of the event was to repair the songlines.
"At the moment the songlines are broken," he said.
"The cultures share our similar beliefs and similar structure, all work on the same sort of practice of spiritual songlines. So, to make sure that balance hasn't broken.
"So, what all Indigenous communities like mine are doing is working to start healing those songlines."
Aboriginal people have danced on the land of Australia for thousands of years.
First Nation civilisation formed a unique cultural web across the whole continent with more than 400 Nations and 200 languages, many songs and dances told stories of who the people were and provided them with their identity.
"We haven't had a Corroboree on this land since 1883," Dallas said.
"This day is going to break history and hopefully break the drought."
