NAIDOC Week is a celebration of the history, culture, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Each year a theme is chosen which highlights different cultural and historical elements. The theme for NAIDOC this year is Our Languages Matter.  The theme was chosen to celebrate the important role language plays in Indigenous culture and as a reminder that there were once around 250 unique Indigenous language groups across Australia.  There are now only around 120 Indigenous languages spoken today, some of which are found in the regions around our campuses.

There are lots of resources in our UON Libraries, as well as a dedicated Indigenous Collection in the Huxley Library. Pop in to the Huxley Library to see the NAIDOC Week display or find out more by accessing Library resources on our regional language groups including:
