NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. NAIDOC Week, held in the first full week of July, is a time to recognise and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society. 

CFA is currently developing its first Koori Inclusion Action Plan (KIAP) to guide CFA in becoming more inclusive of Aboriginal perspectives in the design and delivery of policy, services and programs in communities and to provide increased participation and diversity in the work we do.

CFA Headquarters will be celebrating NAIDOC Week and Aboriginal culture by unveiling of a piece of specially commissioned Koori Artwork.  The Artwork tells a story about the shared culture of fire and land management that CFA and the Koori community share. CFA will be learning more about our common values and providing members with some practical tips that can be used in our work as well as information about where to get advice about Aboriginal culture and engagement.  

For more information and advice about NAIDOC, Koori inclusion and culture please contact the Koori Inclusion Action Plan project on 9262 8603 or 9262 8588.
