Official Naidoc Week - 2nd to 9th July 2017
Theme: Our Language Matters

Languages are the breath of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. For tens of thousands of years they have played a unique and essential role in cultural identity, linking people to their land and water and in the transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, spirituality and rites, through story and song.

They are the original languages of this nation and a priceless treasure, not just for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, but for all Australians
