NAIDOC Week 2018

NAIDOC Week – Because of Her, We Can!

8–15 July 2018

What is NAIDOC Week?

NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'. This acronym has since become the name of an annual week of national celebrations held every July, which observe the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This year, NAIDOC Week will be celebrating the roles that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played in the community as leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates.

Celebrate NAIDOC Week 2018 at the library with a range of inspirational events and activities.
