A wet but spirited game of rugby league has rounded out NAIDOC Week for 2019.
A flag lowering ceremony took place in Wodonga before a clash between The Warriors and Wodonga Storm in Albury.
A performance by the James Fallon Wiradjuri Dance Troupe kicked off the event before The Warriors claimed a 50-14 victory.
Despite the Storm's loss, captain Mosiah Kerr-Kaiwai said he enjoyed the match.
"It was lots of fun, but a bit cold at the start," he said.
"To me NAIDOC Week is about supporting and respecting Indigenous people."
From Hip Hop Dance workshops in Indigo Shire to a film festival in Wangaratta run by the Dirrawarra Indigenous Network, thousands of people attended events across the Border and North East region.
