This week Australians have the opportunity to share and acknowledge the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation during National NAIDOC week.
All Australians are encouraged to come together to celebrate the National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week 2014.
National NAIDOC Committee co-chairs Anne Martin and Ben Mitchell said 'This year’s theme Serving country: centenary & beyond honours all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have served with honour and pride in Australia's military conflicts and engagements across the globe.'
Hundreds of events are taking place across the country from a community fun day in Gawler, SA to an Indigenous art tour of the Art Gallery of Western Australia in Perth, WA. The National NAIDOC Committee encourages you to find out what is happening in your local area and join in the celebrations.
The week will conclude with the presentation of the National NAIDOC Awards at a ceremony and ball event on the Gold Coast on Friday 11 July.
