Posted 3 months ago

NAIDOC

Celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from the comfort of your home this year with a range online activities on offer.

Greater Sydney’s lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic has led to the cancellation of many NAIDOC festivities which celebrate the roots of the nation.

Residents can still celebrate NAIDOC Day tomorrow from home, with online activities including:

  • Online Mayoral Message – Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli will share her NAIDOC message to the community on her official Facebook page on Tuesday 6 July;
  • Online social media campaign – ‘Did you know’ facts sharing Camden’s Indigenous history and statistics;
  • #camdenNAIDOC – Residents can share how they celebrate NAIDOC Week at home by using the hashtag; and,
  • Sharing ways to celebrate NAIDOC in lockdown including colouring-in poster, online homemade bush bread tutorials, make your own playdough in red, yellow and black, send through your song suggestions to help us put together a NAIDOC special Spotify Playlist and ABC Kids Indigenous lullaby online program.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said Council was focused on celebrating NAIDOC Week in the safest way on Tuesday 6 July.

“NAIDOC Week is about acknowledging the ancient history of our beautiful country and that is no different in the Camden area,” Cr Fedeli said.

“Although we cannot celebrate together this year, Council has planned a range of fun that the community can take part in from home.

“This provides our young families a great opportunity to sit together and talk about the history of our great nation and how valuable and important it is to our existence.”
