    National NAIDOC Week
    NAIDOC is a celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians in various fields. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians. NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Activities take place across the nation during NAIDOC Week in the first full week of July. All Australians are encouraged to participate.

    University of Sydney event:
    Dr Charles Perkins AO 2014 Memorial Oration and Prize

    In 2001, the University of Sydney, in collaboration with the Koori Centre, launched the Dr Charles Perkins AO Annual Memorial Oration. The establishment of the Oration began as a recommendation of the Committee to Review Aboriginal Education at the University of Sydney, of which Dr Perkins was a member.
    The University, in consultation with the Koori Centre, adopted in principle that the University establish an Annual Oration. The University, in consultation with the Koori Centre, believed it would be fitting to name the Oration in honour of the University’s first Indigenous graduate, Dr Charles Perkins AO. The Dr Charles Perkins AO Annual Memorial Oration was established with the full support of the Perkins family and in acknowledgement of Dr Perkins’ tireless dedication to human rights and social justice for Indigenous Australians.
