Get Involved! - NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.
NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
The Gunnedah NAIDOC Week Committee meets each year to develop a full program of activities and events throughout NAIDOC Week that showcase the rich indigenous history and culture of the region. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support our local Indigenous community.
For more information about NAIDOC Week 2015 please see the NAIDOC Week 2015 Program of Activities.
