RANZCOG celebrates NAIDOC Week 2021

02 July 2021

NAIDOC Week, Sunday 4 July to Sunday, 11 July

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

NAIDOC was original known as the “Aboriginal Day of Celebration”.

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.

Country that is more than a place and inherent to our identity.

Country that we speak about like a person, sustaining our lives in every aspect - spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially, and culturally.

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.

Find out more about the NAIDOC 2021 theme.

All Fellows, trainees and members are encouraged to take part in any of the activities happening around the country during this special week. For activities, please visit the NAIDOC week website. Keep an eye out also for information that RANZCOG will be sharing on social media channels throughout the week - TwitterFacebookLinkedinInstagram.

RANZCOG also reconfirms our commitment to celebrating the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples not only during this one week period but on an enduring basis.
