Each year, Australians come together to celebrate NAIDOC Week, honouring the history, culture, contribution and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
This year, the National NAIDOC Committee (NNC) rescheduled the 2020 NAIDOC Week to 8-15 November, themed Always Was, Always Will Be. This theme recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
We know that everyone is continuing to work hard to ensure the health and wellbeing of everyone, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities across Australia.
Any planned events and public gatherings need to adhere to physical distancing and hygiene principles to protect our community from the spread of COVID-19.
The commitment and tireless work of the state, regional and local NAIDOC Committees, organisations and individuals and agencies is acknowledged to make NAIDOC Week an outstanding success.
The NNC is continuing to work with partners and key stakeholders to make NAIDOC Week 2020 a suitable and fitting celebration of #AlwaysWasAlwaysWillBe.
