NAIDOC (National Aborigines’ and Islanders’ Day Observance Committee) Week 2021 is almost upon us.
It’s a time to learn about and celebrate our First Nations peoples’ culture and achievements.
It takes place during the first full week of July (4th-11th) to coincide with what traditionally has been National Aborigines Day on the second Friday.
The annual awards ceremony though has been postponed ‘til later in the year.
The theme for the week this year is ‘Heal Country’.
This theme “calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction.”
In other words – recognise and preserve their culture spanning tens of thousands of years years – in every form it exists in.
