The National NAIDOC Committee has announced NAIDOC Week celebrations will be held from July 3 – July 10, 2022.

On July 4, 2022 the Inala Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community will be hosting the Inala NAIDOC Week Launch at the Inala Civic Centre, at 4 Kittyhawk Avenue in Inala from 11:00am to 12:00pm.

On July 6, 2022 the Inala NAIDOC Family Fun Day celebration will follow at C.J. Greenfield Complex Park, 149 Kimberley Street in Richlands from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

The free event will feature entertainment including dance performances, dance workshops and rides.

For more information about these events email Joleen Currie on naidoccoordinator@inalawangarra.com.au.

The NAIDOC website says the theme for this year is to “Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!” for systemic change.

“We all must continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change and keep rallying around our mob, our Elders, our 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.”

NAIDOC week will also focus on supporting and securing reforms, celebrating Indigenous community leaders, recognising Indigenous rights and amplifying Indigenous voices.
