NAIDOC Week 2021

4 July 2021

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the Land on which we stand.  We acknowledge the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples who are the traditional custodians of the Canberra area, and pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.

National NAIDOC Week 2021 runs from 4 to 11 July. The theme for 2021 is Heal Country, which calls for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage. You can read more about the importance of Country on the NAIDOC Week website.

The ANU Library has a significant collection of resources by, for and about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To mark NAIDOC Week (and National Reconciliation Week, which ran from 27 May to 3 June), the Chifley Library has put together a display showcasing some of these items.

These items will be on display on Level 2 of the Chifley Library through July.

We also have a range of resources you can browse online, including:
