NAIDOC Week 2022: 3 - 10th July
NAIDOC Week celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.
Join us for a week of exciting events for adults and youth.
NAIDOC Week 2021 Theme: Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
We all must continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our communities.
Whether it's seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism - we must do it together.
It must be a genuine commitment by all of us to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! and support and secure institutional, structural, collaborative, and cooperative reforms.
It is also time to celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations - they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal right and even basic human rights.
Getting Up, Standing Up and Showing Up can take many forms.
We need to move beyond just acknowledgement, good intentions, empty words and promises, and hollow commitments. Enough is Enough.
The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' rights.
Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! with us to amplify our voices and narrow the gap between aspiration and reality, good intent, and outcome.
NAIDOC Week 2022 is proudly presented by the City of Karratha, with support from Woodside Energy, Rio Tinto, Pilbara Ports Authority and Santos.
