A wide range of programs and activities will be happening across Cumberland as part of NAIDOC week.
This years theme for NAIDOC week is Voice, Treaty, Truth, Lets work together for a shared future.
Voice. Treaty. Truth. acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have always wanted an enhanced role in decision making in Australia’s democracy.
The theme also highlights our various First Nations’ desires for lasting and effective agreements such as Treaties which cannot be achieved unless we have a shared, truthful understanding of the nature of the dispute, of the history, of how we got to where we stand.
