Celebrating Traditional Australian Languages and Knowledge for NAIDOC

Celebrating Traditional Australian Languages and Knowledge for NAIDOC

NAIDOC Week has been celebrated every July since 1975, with a history dating back to the 1920’s when Aboriginal civil rights groups sought recognition for the treatment of First Nations Australians. This year’s theme, ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth.’, encourages all of us to celebrate and promote Indigenous voices and languages. This week has seen art installations, film screenings, and community workshops among many other events being held across Sydney and the rest of the country.
