In observance of NAIDOC week, Wyndham Interfaith Network will conduct An introduction to Wayapa and Aboriginal Spirituality at the Wyndham Community Education Centre, Werribee, on Saturday 7 July 2018.
NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.
Contemporary dance brought Aboriginal stories to the stage, Indigenous art brought the Dreaming to art galleries, and now a host of filmmakers have brought Indigenous songlines to the screen. ABC’s Spirit of Things host Rachael Kohn explores the process of creating a unique documentary series.
NAIDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week is an Australian observance lasting from the first Sunday in July until the following Sunday. NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The week is celebrated not just in the Indigenous communities but also in increasing numbers of government agencies, schools, local councils and workplaces. In 2016, Naidoc Week will run from Sunday, 3 July until Sunday, 10 July 2016.
