Recognising NAIDOC week; ANU Research & Library resources

11 July 2014

This year's National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week celebrates the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have served in military conflicts across the globe and honour their priceless contribution to our nation.

Earlier this year, a group of researchers from The Australian National University received funding to undertake the Serving Our Country: a history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the defence of Australia project. This project will start to compile the nation's first comprehensive record of Indigenous service in the defence forces.

The Library collection has a wealth of resources relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women who have served in military conflicts, and some suggested reading has been included below to help you start your research:
