NAIDOC SA

The South Australian NAIDOC Committee deliver the 4 Major NAIDOC Events in South Australia – The NAIDOC SA Ecumenical Church Service,  The South Australian NAIDOC Awards, The NAIDOC SA March and Family Fun Day and the final event for the week the NAIDOC SA Ball.

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.  The week is a great opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support your local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

NAIDOC originally stood for 'National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee'.  This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has become the name of the week itself. 

The South Australian NAIDOC Committee are not the organising body for all NAIDOC events held throughout the South Australia but invite local and remote communities, schools, organisations and others to promote their events on this webpage. Submissions can be made by contacting .

NATIONAL NAIDOC

Each year, a different city hosts the National NAIDOC Awards ceremony and Ball. 

The host city, National poster competition and the National NAIDOC award winners are selected by the National NAIDOC Committee. Local community celebrations during NAIDOC Week are often organised by communities, government agencies, local councils, schools and workplaces.

To contact the National Committee see www.naidoc.org.au.

OUR HISTORY

With a growing awareness of the distinct cultural histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, NADOC was expanded to recognise Torres Strait Islander people and culture. The committee then became known as the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC).
