Summary
A dance festival organised by the Aboriginal people of Lockhart River becomes an occasion for forging social links among eight Aboriginal groups on Cape York Peninsula and Groote Eylandt; the film records their varied dance styles and the sense of mutual interest and support that the festival creates; for the Lockhart people the event is important as a test of their commitment to their Aboriginal heritage and for the children it stimulates a desire to learn and carry on the performance of traditional dancing
