NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations culture and history and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living culture on earth.
Our office stands on the lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation. We recognise the importance of their connection to place and community on these lands and pay our respects to Elders, past, present, and emerging and extend that acknowledgment to all First Nations People. As part of NAIDOC Week, we celebrate the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout NSW and Australia.
This year’s theme for NAIDOC Week is For Our Elders.
“Across every generation, our Elders have played, and continue to play, an important role and hold a prominent place in our communities and families.
They are cultural knowledge holders, trailblazers, nurturers, advocates, teachers, survivors, leaders, hard workers and our loved ones.
They guide our generations and pave the way for us to take the paths we can take today. Guidance, not only through generations of advocacy and activism, but in everyday life and how to place ourselves in the world.
The struggles of our Elders help to move us forward today. The equality we continue to fight for is found in their fight. Their tenacity and strength has carried the survival of our people.”
