NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is celebrated by all Australians and is a great opportunity to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Central Desert Regional Council (CDRC) celebrated NAIDOC week in July, with celebrations happening in each community. Due to COVID-19 the official NAIDOC week celebrations were postponed until this week and the 2020 National NAIDOC Awards Ceremony that was to be held in Alice Springs has been cancelled. With 40+ degree days we are glad we celebrated in July, but that doesn’t mean we won’t celebrate this week too. CDRC won’t have any events on, but if you are in Alice Springs check out the poster below to see what’s on.
