NAIDOC Week 2017

This year the theme for NAIDOC 2017 is ‘Our Languages Matter’ focusing on the importance, richness and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Languages. Before European settlement there were over 250 unique Aboriginal Language groups with over 600 dialects. Today only around 120 of those languages are still spoken and many are at risk of being lost as Elders pass away. 

Language is more than just a means to communicate, it is a way maintaining cultural practice and passing on knowledge to future generations. Europeans could not see the value of Indigenous language and enforced the use of the English language. Aboriginal people were forbidden to speak in their languages, punished, and even removed from their families and traditional land.

Join the Australian National Maritime Museum, Australian Museum, Museum of Applied Arts and Science, NRL and Royal Botanic Gardens for a variety of video conferences for NAIDOC Week.
