NAIDOC Week provides an opportunity to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It falls in the first full week of July each year with its origins traced back 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.
Nearly all parents of school-aged children (94%) want their kids to have an understanding of Aboriginal people and their history, yet more than 80% feel that they know little or nothing about Aboriginal culture*. Together, we can change this!
NAIDOC Week is not intended to be celebrated only by Indigenous communities, but by all Australians. Click on this link and let’s start celebrating together!
