Each year, Australians come together to celebrate NAIDOC Week and to honour the history, cultures, contribution and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
This year, NAIDOC Week is celebrated from 4 - 11 July and the theme is Heal Country, heal our nation. This theme recognises that, for First Nations, ‘Country’ is more than a place and is inherent to Aboriginal identity. ‘Country’ sustains lives in every sense - spiritually, physically and culturally.
NAIDOC Week 2021 invites the nation to embrace First Nations’ cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia's national heritage.
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 is essential to the success of NAIDOC Week.
For more information on National NAIDOC events, please visit the NAIDOC website.
The NAIDOC SA Committee is the peak body for the coordination of events in South Australia during NAIDOC Week. For more information please visit the NAIDOC South Australia Facebook page.
