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
NAIDOC 2021 invites the nation to embrace First Nations’ cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia’s national heritage and equally respect the culture and values of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders as they do the cultures and values of all Australians.
In this spirit, the IPAA Victoria Aboriginal Advisory Committee invites you to our 2021 NAIDOC Week event focused on the theme of cultural burning and healing country. The event will explore case studies in the public sector learning from Aboriginal traditional knowledge and empowering Traditional Owners in decision-making.
