Celebrating NAIDOC Week: Always Was, Always Will Be

 

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

 

This year, the theme for NAIDOC Week is Always Was, Always Will Be, and the Williamstown Football Club joins all Australians in recognising that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.

 

Always Was, Always Will Be. acknowledges that hundreds of Nations and our cultures covered this continent. All were managing the land - the biggest estate on earth - to sustainably provide for their future.

 

NAIDOC 2020 invites all Australians to embrace the true history of this country – a history which dates back thousands of generations.

 

It’s about seeing, hearing and learning the First Nations’ 65,000+ year history of this country - which is Australian history. 

 

We want all Australians to celebrate that we have the oldest continuing cultures on the planet and to recognise that our sovereignty was never ceded.

 

Always Was, Always Will Be.
