NAIDOC

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

What is NAIDOC Week?

NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is held each July by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Posters from National NAIDOC Poster Gallery are used on this site to promote NAIDOC Week.
