NAIDOC Week 2017
July 05, 2017

Did you know that Australia has over 250 indigenous languages?

There is always something incredible to learn about Australia’s incredible indigenous history.

This week is NAIDOC Week, an Australia wide celebration and reflection of the culture, history and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

We acknowledge that the traditional landowners and prior ownership of this land in Marrickville, where we live and operate Hypmotive Hub from, is by the Cadigal people of the Eora nation.

This week and every day we pay respect to them, their culture and Elders past, present and emerging.

National NAIDOC week is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved with and support their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

This week Hypmotive Hub will be to donating 100% of profits for every 30x30cm authentic indigenous artworks* sold to AIME which is the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience. AIME’s mission and focus is ending educational inequality for Indigenous kids. You can find out more about AIME via their website https://aimementoring.com

There will be a number of events and ceremonies held across Sydney throughout NAIDOC week, see link below to what’s on in Sydney. You can also check out this additional resource copied in below this week and beyond to learn more about Australia’s Indigenous culture.
