10th November 2020

NAIDOC Week 2020 acknowledges and celebrates that our nation's story didn't begin with European contact - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the world's oldest stories that stretch back over 65,000 years.

Those stories are more important than ever right now to ensure their voices are heard now and long into the future - so the SWITCH team has collected the best Indigenous Australian films that remind us of the importance of seeing, hearing and learning the First Nations' history.
