NAIDOC

NAIDOC WEEK 2021 (4 - 11 July 2021) 

NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to honour and highlight the rich culture and history of Australia’s Indigenous Peoples. During NAIDOC Week, the stories, cultures and achievements of our country’s First Nation Peoples is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by all Australians.

Western Sydney University was proud to celebrate the 2021 NAIDOC Week theme ‘Heal Country’. This theme calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage.

The NAIDOC quiz is a great opportunity for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous staff and students to test their knowledge of factual information and reflect on the significance of NAIDOC week and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
