This year NAIDOC Week was postponed until November due to COVID-19; however this did not stop the celebrations as Commission staff provided information and community outreach to attendees at the Mirrabooka NAIDOC Event held at the Herb Graham Recreation Centre.

WA Equal Opportunity Commissioner Dr John Byrne said as in previous years it was wonderful to see families, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, coming together to celebrate Australia's First People, their contribution and their culture.

"There is always something for everyone at these events, whether it is providing resources and information, painting boomerangs or watching traditional Aboriginal dancers, it is a wonderful way to bring the community together," he said.

Dr Byrne was also glad to participate in the Office of the Auditor General's NAIDOC morning tea along with other Commission staff.

"NAIDOC Week provided a wonderful opportunity to bring all agencies in Albert Facey House together with cultural activities and bush tucker morning tea," he said.

The Equal Opportunity Commission also launched its 2021 Aboriginal Calendar available for order online.
