About NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and recognise the contributions our Indigenous Australians make to our country and our communities across the Nation.

In 2021 the theme was Heal Country!  A call out for everyone to collectively seek greater protections of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lands, waters, sacred places and cultural heritage. To consider better ways to prevent exploitation, desecration and destruction of Country.  Country is essential to Aboriginal identity, linking every facet of spiritual, physical, emotional, social and cultural life.

The theme supports substantial and committed structural reform done together as a nation and resetting the relationship Australia has with our First Nations peoples - the oldest continuing culture in the world.

Heal Country, heal our nations.
