Celebrations will be held July 4-11, 2021.

Cancelled this year are the National NAIDOC Awards 2021 in Mparntwe (Alice Springs) and a gala Awards Ceremony at the Sydney Opera House. NAIDOC: “It is a timely reminder that Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to be a concern for communities around Australia and we all need keep our mob safe this NAIDOC Week by making sure our events and celebrations are held in a COVIDSafe way.” “The NAIDOC 2021 theme – Heal Country! – calls for all of us to continue to seek greater protections for our lands, our waters, our sacred sites and our cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration, and destruction. Country that is more than a place and inherent to our identity. Country that we speak about like a person, sustaining our lives in every aspect – spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and culturally.”
