NAIDOC Week 2014: 6-13 July

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around the country each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAPCAN encourages all Australians to share and acknowledge the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the nation. Let us join together to celebrate the National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week 2014 (6-13 July).

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.”

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.

The awards recognise the outstanding achievements and contributions made by Indigenous artists, scholars, sportspeople, Elders and community members across the country. There are 10 award categories, including the Person of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award. Tickets for the event are now sold out but you can catch the broadcast on NITV on Saturday 19 July at 7:30 pm AEST.
