NAIDOC Week: Heal Country!

2021 National NAIDOC Logo (National NAIDOC Secretariat)

National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week, held 4th-11th July across Australia, is a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is not just celebrated by Indigenous communities, but by all Australians and provides an opportunity to participate in activities and support local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Each year NAIDOC Week selects a theme to focus the celebrations around, this year’s theme is “Heal Country”.

This week, DNA is celebrating NAIDOC Week by revisiting some of the inspirational LGBTQIA+ Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people we’ve met in DNA over the years. Each day this week we’ll be posting articles, interviews, and photoshoots taken from The Archives to celebrate the diversity of our communities. The posts will be open to all to enjoy.

“Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction”. – National NAIDOC Secretariat
