NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture, resilience and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
NAIDOC celebrates the culture and heritage, commemorates our history, and unifies our communities. It is a week to actively demonstrate pride in our heritage.
This years’ theme VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH. invited all Australians to walk in a movement for a better future.
For generations, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have sought recognition of their unique place in Australian history and society today as the oldest continuing culture on the planet.
It acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have always wanted an enhanced role in decision-making in Australia’s democracy.
As part of the NAIDOC Week celebrations, Intract Australia and McMahon Services, throughout the country, were invited to join hand-in-hand, in recognising and celebrating the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.
