Thank you to the subscriber who reminded me of the National NAIDOC celebration. This is an indigenous Australian week with a chosen theme each year to reflect the important achievements and issues facing indigenous Australia. This year's theme is: 'Taking Responsibility for the Future'.
NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) is celebrated in July. It is celebrated for a whole week from the 3rd to the 10th of July. It seeks to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of indigenous Australians as well as promote its culture; music, history, art and crafts. Here are a few ideas on how to celebrate this date.
Plan a day where entertainment, food, craft, music, TV and films relate to aboriginal Australia.
