NAIDOC week 2021- Heal Country with Indigenous Sign Language


Heal Country with Indigenous Sign Language – NAIDOC week 

Hi Everyone 

Im the interim CEO of Deaf Australia Rodney Adams 

This week we celebrate NAIDOC week 

What is NAIDOC? NAIDOC respects the traditions and history of first nations people in Australia - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders people. 

The theme for this week is ‘Heal Country’? why the theme ‘Heal Country’? Its because Aborigianl and Torres Strait people have a strong connection to land. That connection is our identity and we celebrate our identity spiritually, emotionally, culturally and linguistically. 

In the short term Deaf Australia want to share some Indigenous Sign Language as linguistically it was a way to connect to our country in a way that Heals. This is a vey important part of Aboriginal culture traditionally and in the future. So we are excited to share some interesting information about healing country.  

So this week enjoy NAIDOC week.
