Thor: Love and Thunder has officially begun filming in Australia. Taking to Instagram, star Chris Hemsworth revealed that the shoot has kicked off with a ceremony with Indigenous Australians welcoming the cast and crew with a special ceremony welcoming them to the country.
The actor posted several photos from the event, including one of himself alongside director Taika Waititi and many of the dancers dressed up for the ceremony.
“A beautiful start to our shoot today with a Welcome to Country ceremony from the Gamay dancers of the Gadigal and Bidiagal Nation and performance and karakia by Maori dancers from Te Aranganui,” Hemsworth writes in the caption.
He adds, “Indigenous Australians may be just as proud of this country, but many see January 26th as a date signifying the beginning of dispossession, disease epidemics, frontier violence, destruction of culture, exploitation, abuse, separation of families and subjection to policies of extreme social control. Let’s begin the healing and stand together in unity and support with our First Nations people with solidarity and compassion. Let’s find a date where all Australians can celebrate this beautiful country together.”
