NAIDOC Week 2020 Theme: Always Was, Always Will Be.

NAIDOC Week 2020 acknowledges and celebrates that our nation’s story didn’t begin with documented European contact whether in 1770 or 1606 - with the arrival of the Dutch on the western coast of the Cape York Peninsula.

The very first footprints on this continent were those belonging to First Nations peoples.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were Australia’s first explorers, first navigators, first engineers, first farmers, first botanists, first scientists, first diplomats, first astronomers and first artists.

Always Was, Always Will Be. recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years

NAIDOC 2020 invites all Australians to embrace the true history of this country – a history which dates back thousands of generations

Join us in celebrating that we have the oldest continuing cultures on the planet

NAIDOC Week 2020 is proudly presented by the City of Karratha, with support from Woodside, Rio Tinto, Pilbara Ports Authority, Fortesque BusWest, Kennards Hire, Cleanaway and Pilbara News
