NAIDOC WEEK CELEBRATIONS IN GYMPIE REGION 2021

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.  In 2021, NAIDOC Week will be celebrated across the country from 4-11 July (with some events held later to coincide with Term 3 return to school).

The NAIDOC 2021 theme – Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction. For more information and resources about NAIDOC Week, visit www.naidoc.org.au
