NAIDOC Week 7-14 July

NAIDOC week is held between 7-14 July and the theme this year is Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let's work together for a shared future.  

In recognition of NAIDOC Week, the library has created a display with selected materials from the Barr Smith Main Collection, Law Library, and Yaitya Ngutupira, which showcases this year’s theme.  Key documents of interest include the "Uluru: Statement from the Heart" and "Treaty! Let’s get it right".

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Celebrations are held across Australia each July 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 and the week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities, and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

We would like to encourage staff and students to visit the library display during July to learn and increase their knowledge and understanding of the significant issues and challenges we share as a country, with visitors welcome to leave comments on the peg line.

For further information, please contact the Indigenous Support Librarian.
