This year’s theme – Heal Country! – calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage.
Events will be held around Australia during the week to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We at the Marian Centre support NAIDOC Week and our traditional owners; Whadjuk Noongar Boodjar in creating lasting change to Heal Country.
