NAIDOC Week 20208–15 November

Always Was, Always Will Be

First Peoples of Australia (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders) have the oldest living and continuous cultures in the world. First Peoples have been caring for this country since time immemorial with artists, educators, scientists and activists contributing to all areas of Australia’s community.

Throughout NAIDOC (National Aboriginal Islanders Day Observance Committee) week we will be celebrating First Peoples histories, cultures and knowledge systems, and peoples. This year’s NAIDOC theme is Always Was, Always Will Be.

From this page you can access our online resources that acknowledge First Peoples.
