This week we are celebrating NAIDOC Week.
NAIDOC is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians in various fields.
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.
The NAIDOC week website has lots of useful information and events
Some activities we are using to celebrate this week are:
Story stones, music
Dreamtime stories, including one of my favourites Tiddalik the frog.
What are you doing to celebrate NAIDOC week??
We would love to hear from you.
