NAIDOC Week 2018 Theme
Focusing on this year’s theme - Because of her, we can! - NAIDOC Week 2018 will be celebrated from Sunday 8 July until Sunday 15 July throughout Australia.
As the theme suggests, NAIDOC Week 2018 will honour the sacrifice and selfless contributions in which the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have made - and continue to make on a daily basis throughout our communities, families, rich history and nation.
These respected women are our mothers, our elders, our grandmothers, our aunties, our sisters and our daughters. They fought and “continue to fight, for justice, equal rights, our rights to country, for law and justice, access to education, employment and to maintain and celebrate our culture, language, music and art.”
They continue to influence as leaders, trailblazers, politicians, activists and social change activities in various roles such as “doctors, lawyers, teachers, electricians, chefs, nurses, architects, rangers, emergency and defence personnel, writers, volunteers, chief executive officers, actors, singer songwriters, journalists, entrepreneurs, media personalities, board members, accountants, academics, sporting icons and Olympians, the list goes on."
“Their achievements, their voice, their unwavering passion give us strength and have empowered past generations and paved the way for generations to come.Because of her, we can!”
