NAIDOC Week

NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July every year and is celebrated in all South Australian prisons by both Aboriginal prisoners and staff alike.

NAIDOC Week is a major event on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural calendar in Australia and the Torres Strait Islands.
It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and the contributions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians make to our country.

The Aboriginal Services Unit supports and attends various celebrations and events within the institutions throughout the entire week.

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
You can find out more about the Committee and the NAIDOC Week celebrations and observations on their website.
