What does NAIDOC mean to you?

NAIDOC Week is ours, it’s for us – for First Nations mob to come together and celebrate our incredible achievements, our strength, our resilience, our humour, all the things that make us proud. It’s also a time for reflection, to honour our ancestors and elders who have paved the way, to draw on their strength and build on the great legacies they left behind.
