Lake Macquarie City Council joins in celebrating the various annual NAIDOC Week events with the wider community, schools and organisations.
NAIDOC originally stood for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. The committee was responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and this acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
Today, NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia and recognise the unique history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The week is a great opportunity for Lake Macquarie residents to participate in a range of activities and to support Lake Macquarie’s local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Due to COVID-19 The National NAIDOC Committee postponed this year's NAIDOC Week to Sunday 8 - Sunday 15 November.
Each year not-for-profit organisations and schools who wish to hold culturally significant projects or events in celebration of NAIDOC Week can apply for Council's NAIDOC Week events funding grant. Applications are currently closed.
