2018 National NAIDOC Theme: Because of her, we can!

NAIDOC Week recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and achievements.What started as a day of mourning in 1940 is now a full week of events that acknowledge the contributions of the First Peoples of Australia.

NAIDOC Week 2018 celebrates the invaluable contributions that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made – and continue to make - to our communities, our families, our rich history and to our nation.

NAIDOC Week 2018 is celebrated nationally from Sunday 8 July to Sunday 15 July.
