WHAT IS NAIDOC WEEK
NAIDOC week 8-15 July 2018. This year the national NAIDOC theme is “Because of her we can”. The events held in Bundaberg during NAIDOC week incorporate the current theme whilst building on the inclusions of past themes .
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society. We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during and to actively be involved in the local awards nomination process.
One of the most prominent aspects of the NAIDOC week celebrations are the NAIDOC awards. The Bundaberg & District NAIDOC invites you to nominate an Indigenous Australian in one of the nine categories using our simple nomination form which takes only a few minutes. Being nominated for, or winning, one of these prestigious awards can be life altering and have far reaching positive impacts for an individual. So we encourage you to take the time and make a difference to a deserving person this year. Nominations open 11-26 May 2018
