Voice. Treaty. Truth. NAIDOC Week 2019.

NAIDOC Week is a national annual celebration held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The week is a great opportunity for not only Indigenous communities, but Australians from all walks of life to participate in a range of activities and celebrations, and for you to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

This year’s NAIDOC theme is Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let’s work together for a shared future. It especially significant given 2019 is also the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages.

Proudly, this year's poster design was created by South Australian woman and Kaurna/Narungga artist, Charmaine Mumbulla.
From our UniSA Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof. Irene Watson

As part of this year's celebrations, UniSA will be launching the installation of The Department of Welcome, an exhibition created by the University’s Museum of Discovery (MOD.), which depicts the 44 Aboriginal language groups of South Australia and their words of welcome.

A group of Aboriginal Elders from the northern area will yarn about Aboriginal futures: what that might look like, what we need to do to get there, and the role that UniSA can play.

We encourage you to join us in marking NAIDOC week and attend this event at Mawson Lakes campus on 11 July. Find further event details and register your attendance online here.
