NAIDOC Week: Always Was, Always Will Be

This week marks NAIDOC week and this year’s theme is Always Was, Always Will Be, which recognises the very first footprints on this continent were those belonging to First Nations people over 65,000 years ago.

The NAIDOC theme seeks to get teachers, students and communities to learn about and appreciate the wealth and breadth of Indigenous Nations, languages and knowledges of this continent.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures cross-curriculum priority is designed for all students to engage in reconciliation, respect and recognition of the world's oldest continuous living cultures.

NAIDOC week in 2020 invites all Australians to embrace the true history of this country – a history which dates back thousands of generations.
