NAIDOC celebrations have commenced for the week of July 2 to July 9.
The Southern Region was proudly represented by Moreton District’s very own Police Liaison Officer, Mick Douglas. Mick performed the official raising of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flag outside Police Headquarters this morning July 5.
The event was attended by the Police Minister, Police Commissioner, QPS staff and community members.
The week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The 2017 theme is Our Languages Matter, which NAIDOC said “aims to emphasise and celebrate the unique and essential role that Indigenous languages play in both cultural identity, linking people to their land and water, and in transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, spirituality and rites, through story and song”.
