We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.
The Indigenous voice of this country is over 65,000 plus years old.
They are the first words spoken on this continent. Languages that passed down lore, culture and knowledge for over millennia. They are precious to our nation.
It’s that Indigenous voice that include know-how, practices, skills and innovations - found in a wide variety of contexts, such as agricultural, scientific, technical, ecological and medicinal fields, as well as biodiversity-related knowledge. They are words connecting us to country, an understanding of country and of a people who are the oldest continuing culture on the planet.
NAIDOC Week 2019 is proudly presented by the City of Karratha, with support from Woodside, Rio Tinto Western Australia, Pilbara Ports Authority, Kennards Hire and Cleanaway.
