NAIDOC WEEK 2021

4 - 11 July 2021

Heal Country, Heal Our Nation.

As reflected on the NAIDOC organising committee website, NAIDOC Week acknowledges and celebrates that our nation’s story didn’t begin with documented European contact whether in 1770 or 1606 - with the arrival of the Dutch on the western coast of the Cape York Peninsula. The very first footprints were those belonging to First Nations Peoples. For us, this nation’s story began at the dawn of time.


 

Past Events

YARRAMUNDI LECTURE

The Yarramundi Lecture provided a forum for the discussion of issues of local and national importance. It was established out of respect and recognition of First Nations People and has become central to the University's longstanding commitment to its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
