NAIDOC Week 2017

In celebration of NAIDOC Week 2017 the Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct will bring together women leaders from Papua New Guinea and Australia’s indigenous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities for a panel discussion.

NAIDOC Week is held each year to celebrate the achievements and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The NAIDOC 2017 theme – Our Languages Matter – aims to emphasise and celebrate the unique and essential role that Indigenous languages play in cultural identity, linking people to their land and water and in the transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, spirituality and rites, through story and song.
