NAIDOC Week is a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. This year NAIDOC is celebrated under the theme: Because of Her, We Can and celebrates the role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play in society.
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 2018 will be held nationally from Sunday 8 July and continue through to Sunday 15 July.
