'Keep the fire burning - Blak, loud and proud' - National NAIDOC Week 2024

Join the NAIDOC week celebrations from 7-14 July 2024

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held this year from 7 to 14 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. The week is a great opportunity for teachers, schools and early childhood services to participate in a range of school / early childhood service-based activities, engage your learners and support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

The 2024 theme "Keep the fire burning! Blak, loud and proud" honours the enduring strength and vitality of First Nations culture. Fire symbolises connection to the Country, to each other and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

"Blak, Loud and Proud" encapsulates the unapologetic celebration of Indigenous identity, empowering First Nations people to stand tall in their heritage and assert their place in the modern world. This theme calls for a reclamation of narratives, an amplification of voices, and an unwavering commitment to justice and equality. It invites all Australians to listen, learn, and engage in meaningful dialogue, fostering a society where the wisdom and contributions of Indigenous peoples are fully valued and respected.

Through our collective efforts, we can forge a future where the stories, traditions, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are cherished and celebrated, enriching the fabric of the nation with the oldest living culture in the world.
