NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) Week, occurs in July on an annual basis. NAIDOC Week is significant becuase it celebrates the great history, cultural traditions and achievements of the Australian Aborigional and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This year, NAIDOC week commences on Sunday 3rd of July 2022 and concludes Sunday 10th of July 2022. Each year, there is a dedicated theme for NAIDOC week that explores different elements of the Indigenous culture and drives awareness of some of the challenges that face Aborigional & Torres Strait Islanders.
In 2022, the theme is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! which aims to create support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.
