NAIDOC Week 2021

NAIDOC Week 2021

Here at KABC(NT) we’re proud to recognise and acknowledge NAIDOC Week 2021 which will be held from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July.

We love this year’s theme ‘Heal Country’ which calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage.

This year, NAIDOC Week is celebrated differently to ensure we can protect those most vulnerable in our community such as Elders and those with pre-existing health conditions from COVID-19.

Here are 20 ideas to help you celebrate NAIDOC Week 2021 in a COVIDSafe way.
