NAIDOC Week (7-14 July) is the annual national week celebrating the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The theme for NAIDOC Week 2013 is “We value the vision: Yirrkala Bark Petitions 1963”, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the Yirrkala Bark Petitions to the Federal Parliament. It values the foresight, strength and determination of the Yolngu people from Arnhem Land whose Bark Petitions set into motion a long process of legislative and constitutional reforms for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
