NAIDOC Week 2021 will be celebrated from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July.
It is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Heal Country! – the theme for NAIDOC Week 2021 — invites us to embrace First Nations’ cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia’s national heritage and equally respect the culture and values of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It seeks greater protections for the lands, waters, sacred sites and cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and a resolution of outstanding grievances and issues impacting on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
