NAIDOC Week 2013

Celebrate Indigenous culture and achievements

This event has finished

NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee) week seeks to raise awareness about the value Indigenous people contribute to the wider community. This year, NAIDOC week’s theme celebrates the acceptance of the Yirrkala Bark Petitions by the Australian Parliament. This event is considered to be the catalyst in the recognition of the rights of the Indigenous community within Australian law. In 1963 the Yolngu people sent a petition framed by bark paintings seeking the acknowledgement of their land rights. They were the first traditional documents to be acknowledged by the Commonwealth. Join in the celebrations and honour our history.
