NAIDOC Week 2014


Wominjeka (Welcome) to NAIDOC Week at Bunjilaka, Melbourne Museum.

NAIDOC Week is the national celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the contributions of Australia’s First Peoples.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
