NAIDOC Week: Alexa is on Whadjuk Noongar Country and She Shares Information About the Importance of the Balga

Alexa is a Baha’i on Whadjuk Noongar country and in honour of NAIDOC Week she shares information about the importance of the Balga.

NAIDOC Week is a national week of celebrations held across Australia every year (July 3-10), in order to honour the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme for NAIDOC Week is “Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!”.

NAIDOC is celebrated not only in indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life, and therefore Baha’i Blog hopes to be able to do more content like this, in order to serve as a platform to listen to, learn, and foster conversations about the history, culture and achievements of the first nations peoples of Australia.
