NAIDOC Week

08 Jul 2018 12:00 AM - 15 Jul 2018 11:30 PM

The National NAIDOC Committee is pleased to announce the #NAIDOC2018 theme – Because of her, we can!

The theme celebrates the essential role that women have played – and continue to play – as active and significant role models at the community, local, state and national levels.

According to the official NAIDOC website: http://www.naidoc.org.au/

"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 is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.

We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during NAIDOC Week."
