NAIDOC 2017

NAIDOC 2017

Many hundreds of people came together to participate in the
Mirrabooka NAIDOC celebrations on Monday 3rd July. It was a joyous day of music, dance, food and fun. The theme for 2017 is Our Languages Matter.
Some 250 distinct Indigenous Language groups covered the continent at first European contact in the late 18th century. Most of these languages would have several dialects. Today only around 120 of those languages are still spoken and many are at risk of being lost as Elders pass on.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait languages are not just a means of communication, they express knowledge about everything, so it is vital to recognise the importance, resilience and richness of language.
It was also a great to time to recognise the many active and committed community members and organisations who work together to promote Aboriginal culture, strengths and reconciliation.
