 NAIDOC celebrations are  being held  Across Australia during the first week of July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples .

In Alice Springs Central Australian Aboriginal Congress invited the community to attend NAIDOC celebrations providing children activities, music and health messages. Service providers expressed the importance of the celebrating the week.

NSW campaigner for the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Wiradjuri woman Jenny Munro says  it is sad that  much of white Australia still does not understand the importance of Aboriginal culture and encouraged  them  to reflect and learn from the past.
