The NAIDOC SA Committee is an Incorporated Association ABN: 579 902 681 52
Each year the NAIDOC SA Committee manages and delivers the 3 Major South Australian NAIDOC Events: NAIDOC SA Awards and Lord Mayor's Morning Tea, NAIDOC March & NAIDOC Family Fun Day and the NAIDOC 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. To find out more about the origins of NAIDOC Week, visit our history section.
Each year, a different city hosts the National NAIDOC Awards ceremony and Ball. The host city, poster competition and the 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.
The host city for 2015 will be Adelaide, South Australia!!
Please note that permission is not required to fly either the Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander flag. However, if you want to reproduce either flag (for example, on a flyer or poster), you will need to seek permission. More information
about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags including contact details to gain permissions is available on this site - http://www.naidoc.org.au/celebrating-naidoc-week/indigenous-australian-flags/
For many years, the Australian Government has supported national NAIDOC celebrations as well as providing grants through Indigenous Coordination Centres to fund local celebrations.
