NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to celebrate the rich history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The City will celebrate NAIDOC Week from 2-9 July 2017, by partnering with community organisations and local Noongar community members to host a series of events including a flag raising ceremony and kids crafts.

The importance, resilience and richness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages will be the focus of national celebrations. This year’s theme ‘Our Languages Matter’ aims to emphasise and celebrate the unique and essential role that Indigenous languages play in cultural identity, linking people to their land and water and in the transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, spirituality and rites, through story and song.
