Recognising NAIDOC Week

This week is NAIDOC week. It is a time to recognise and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres straight Islander peoples. For Mercy Connect participant, Daniel, it is a very important week that he celebrates each year.

NAIDOC week means a lot to me and my people of Wiradjuri people.
We stick together as one tribe.
I like my aboriginal art.
I like to play the didgeridoo.
I am very proud of my culture.
