Join us for the South West NAIDOC Ball and South West NAIDOC Awards and celebrate NAIDOC Week and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

It is an opportunity for the people and businesses of Bunbury and the wider South West to come together as we celebrate the history, culture and achievements of First Nations people with a night to remember featuring entertainment, delicious meals and the esteemed NAIDOC Awards Ceremony.

The NAIDOC Awards recognise the outstanding contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to their community in an effort to improve lives for First Nations communities and beyond. They seek to recognise excellence on both an individual and community level. The Awards are held every year during NAIDOC Week and will be celebrated and awarded at the NAIDOC Ball.

Keep the Fire Burning! Blak, Loud and Proud.

This year’s theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of our communities and invites all to stand in solidarity, amplifying the voices that have long been silenced.

The fire represents the enduring strength and vitality of Indigenous cultures, passed down through generations despite the challenges faced. It is a symbol of connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. As we honour this flame, we kindle the sparks of pride and unity, igniting a renewed commitment to acknowledging, preserving, and sharing the cultural heritage that enriches our nation.

“Blak, Loud and Proud” encapsulates the unapologetic celebration of Indigenous identity, empowering us to stand tall in our heritage and assert our place in the modern world. This theme calls for a reclamation of narratives, an amplification of voices, and an unwavering commitment to justice and equality. It invites all Australians to listen, learn, and engage in meaningful dialogue, fostering a society where the wisdom and contributions of Indigenous peoples are fully valued and respected.

Through our collective efforts, we can forge a future where the stories, traditions, and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are cherished and celebrated, enriching the fabric of the nation with the oldest living culture in the world.

 


This National NAIDOC Week Activity is funded by the National Indigenous Australians Agency.
