National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year, to celebrate and recognise the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme is For Our Elders.
Our Elders have played, and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families. We draw strength from their knowledge and experience, in everything from cultural knowledge to justice and human rights. Across multiple sectors like health, education, the arts, politics, and everything in between, they have set the many courses we follow. It is their influence and through their learnings that we must ensure that when it comes to future decision making for our people, there is nothing about us - without us.
This website collates a wealth of books, podcasts, television shows, and movies by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples, making a great stepping off point to exploring and learning more about the culture, experiences and achievements of First Nations peoples.
