NAIDOC WEEK 7th – 14th July

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

With 5% of our members identifying as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, Maitland Hockey Inc is very pleased to once again take this opportunity to recognise the contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to hockey in Maitland and the Hunter as well as in our wider Community.

We will acknowledge and pay our respects on Saturday 6th July to the Aboriginal Peoples who have been in the areas around our hockey centre for more than 60,000 years, including the Wonnarua, Awabakal, Darkinjung, Worimi and Geawegal Peoples, as the traditional custodians of these lands.

We’ll share more posts about NAIDOC Week in the coming weeks. In the meantime further information can be found at:
