Celebrate NAIDOC Week 2018
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
NAIDOC Week incorporates ‘National Aboriginal Day’.
It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and society.
We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during NAIDOC Week.
