- As a proudly Australian initiative, we’re excited to showcase a collection of Australian stories, music, tributes and more.
In honour of NAIDOC Week, Collis and Louis share what they learnt about the seven seasons recognised by the Larrakia people!
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 Week 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 videos like this one, in order to serve as a platform to listen to, and foster conversations about the history, culture and achievements of the first nations peoples of Australia.

The Larrakia people are the traditional owners of the Darwin region. Their country runs from Cox peninsula in the west to Gunn Point in the north, Adelaide River in the east and down to the Manton Dam area southwards. You can learn about their history, culture, events and peoples at the Larrakia Nation website: larrakia.com/about/the-larrakia-people
