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. 
NAIDOC Week 2022 is held nationally and the theme for this year is “Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!” 

This year everyone is being asked to make change beginning with brave actions in their daily lives – where they live, work, play and socialise.
  • Encourage the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community to continue to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! for systemic change
  • 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
  • Celebrate the many who have driven and led change in our communities over generations -they have been the heroes and champions of change, of equal rights and even basic human rights. 
  • Move beyond just acknowledgement, good intentions, empty words and promises, and hollow commitments.  
The relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non‑Indigenous Australians needs to be based on justice, equity, and the proper recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ rights.
