NAIDOC Week Intereach events calendar 2019
Once again our staff members are attending a number of NAIDOC Week events across the Intereach footprint. NAIDOC Week is recognised nationally from July 7 to 14 and this year’s theme is ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let’s work together for a shared future’.
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
