National NAIDOC Week 2022

Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

National NAIDOC Week 3-10 July 2022 is a time to embrace the history of this country. A history which dates back 65,000 years and recognises how First Nations people have cared for and shaped the spirit, culture and uniqueness of Australia. 

The 2022 NAIDOC Week theme encourages us all Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, and our First Nations communities. Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism – we must do it together.
