National Indigenous Australians AGency

Heal Country! 4-11 July 2021

NAIDOC Week 2021 will be held from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July.

This year’s theme – Heal Country! – calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage.

Events will be held around Australia during NAIDOC week to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

It will culminate in the 2021 National NAIDOC Awards Ceremony in Alice Springs.

Nominations are open for the 2021 National NAIDOC Awards until 5:00pm (AEDT), Monday 22 March 2021.

These National awards recognise the outstanding contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

This year’s ceremony will include the 2020 and 2021 awards due to the cancellation of the 2020 awards last year.

People are encouraged to nominate individuals and groups who go above and beyond to improve the lives of First Nations people in their communities, promote Indigenous issues in the wider community or show excellence in their chosen field.
