In Australia, NAIDOC Week 2016 will run from 3rd – 10th July 2016 and is an opportunity for all Australians to come together to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Each year for NAIDOC, a theme is given to provide a focus for the celebrations.
This year’s theme is Songlines – The Living Narrative of our Nation.
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the Dreamtime describes a time when the earth, people and animals were created by our ancestral spiritual beings. They created the rivers, lakes, plants, land formations and living creatures. Dreaming tracks are sometimes called ‘Songlines’ which record the travels of these ancestral spirits who ‘sung’ the land into life.
