Embracing NAIDOC Week 2024: Celebrating Culture and Unity


This Sunday, July 7th, marks the start of NAIDOC Week 2024, with the theme ‘Keep the Fire Burning: Blak, Loud and Proud’. Communities nationwide are already celebrating the remarkable achievements, leadership, and rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


NAIDOC Week isn’t just an event to attend—it’s an invitation for everyone to get involved. Whether you participate in local events, listen to Indigenous leaders, or engage in traditional cultural practices, there are numerous ways to connect and learn. It’s about forging relationships and gaining deeper insights, fostering unity and mutual respect.


An important aspect of this year’s celebrations is the inclusion of the prayer ‘Keep the Fire Burning’, written by Safina Stewart, a proud Wuthathi and Mabuiag Island woman. This prayer holds special significance as it encourages communities to reflect and come together, blending faith and cultural heritage in a meaningful manner.
