Celebrating NAIDOC Week 2021
NAIDOC Week will be celebrated nationally from July 4 – July 11. Each year NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.
This year’s theme is Heal Country, heal our nation. When Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples talk about Country it is spoken of like a person: Country is family, kin, law, lore, ceremony, traditions, and language. For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples it has been this way since the dawn of time.
This NAIDOC Week, learn more about our indigenous culture, one of the richest and oldest continuing cultures in the world. Explore indigenous issues, stories and perspectives, and be part of conversations around significant and lasting change to Heal Country, heal our nation.
Here are a few suggestions of how to get involved during NAIDOC Week:
