2013 Australia – Significant Aboriginal Dates in Aboriginal History
Sunday 4th August 2013
National Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day is celebrated on 4 August each year. Today is the 26th Anniversary of this special day.
The 2012 National Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day theme was “Our Children, Our Culture, Our Way”
“… we walked through the rainforest, collated nature and made nature hangings… the mums did traditional weaving and the kids did more games. The kids went to sleep in the bus and the mothers were smiling ear to ear. It was the best day.” Bunjum Aboriginal Co-op
“National Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day provided an excellent opportunity to promote the importance of children within our community. A specific day for our children was GREAT!!” – Eidsvold Aboriginal Children’s Activities Playgroup, QLD
