Each year NAIDOC week focuses on a theme; the 2019 theme chosen by the National NAIDOC Committee is, VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH. Let's work together for a shared future.This theme acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have always wanted an enhanced role in decision-making in Australia’s democracy.
