Across the country ceremonies and events will be held in recognition of the week and will be focused around the 2019 theme of 'Voice. Treaty. Truth. Let's work together.'

"Voice. Treaty. Truth. were three key elements to the reforms set out in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. These reforms represent the unified position of First Nations Australians," NAIDOC organisers said.
