In 2021, the theme for NAIDOC week is ‘Heal Country’ – where we celebrate the places that connect us to our culture, identity, values, family and peoples.

Throughout Australia’s history, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples AND their places and sacred sites, both land and waters, have faced extreme trauma and adversities. However, as resilience grows and strength deepens, there is much healing. There is a commitment to healing as individuals, as families and for the land – both now and for the next generations.

NAIDOC 2021 invites the nation to embrace First Nations’ cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia’s national heritage and equally respect the culture and values of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders as they do the cultures and values of all Australians.

NAIDOC week is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the oldest continuing cultures on the planet.
