NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Some recommendations to engage, learn about and enjoy indigenous cultures and achievements.

Currently reading and loving this beautiful book.
FIRDA is a great organisation that runs workshops to learn about culture, land and language. I was lucky enough to participate in a woman’s business workshop with my kids a couple of years ago.
“Clothing The Gaps is a Victorian Aboriginal owned and led social enterprise. They are a fresh and dynamic fashion label managed by health professionals that celebrates Aboriginal people and culture”.
Fantastic, conversation producing merchandise, that also educates white fellas like me.
A mesmerising dance company. When we are out of lock-down go and see their latest production.
I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which I live and practice. This land always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
