2018 NAIDOC Week began 8 July and will run through to 15 July.

The theme is Because of Her, We Can  – recognising, valuing and celebrating the courage, resilience, activism and leadership of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women.

More on the theme from the NAIDOC website:

“As pillars of our society, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played – and continue to play – active and significant roles at the community, local, state and national levels.

As leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change advocates, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women fought and continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate our culture, language, music and art.

For at least 65,000 years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have carried our dreaming stories, songlines, languages and knowledge that have kept our culture strong and enriched us as the oldest continuing culture on the planet.
