Celebrating Indigenous Participation

11 December 2020

NAIDOC Week celebrations encourage Indigenous participation and are held across Australia each year.   They celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. The week provides opportunity to participate in a range of activities and to support our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself. Find out more about the origins and history of NAIDOC Week.

As a strong supporter of local indigenous participation, CEQ recognised the importance of celebrating local NAIDOC week events by sponsoring the Gold Coast Dolphins Women’s 1st and 2nd grade teams Indigenous Playing Strip. Both Women’s teams participated in a Barefoot Circle and Welcome to Country prior to the commencement of the key matches of the round, before raising their bats to victory against their competition.

Results:

First Grade: 4/109 off 15 overs vs Wests (10/108 off 29 overs)

Second Grade: 6/279 off 40 overs vs Redlands (10/56 off 23.3 overs)
