NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Australia’s First Nations peoples.
NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’.
This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
The NAIDOC Week theme for 2018 is Because of her, we can! See the website for local community celebrations during NAIDOC Week.
