Aboriginal flag flying at Kluge-Ruhe

NAIDOC was formed in 1957 as the National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians. For a week in July each year, Australia celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. For 2012 NAIDOC has chosen the 40th anniversary of the Tent Embassy as its theme.

On Saturday, July 7th at 10:00 am the Kluge-Ruhe Collection will hold a flag raising ceremony of the Aboriginal flag in celebration of NAIDOC week. Also, keep an eye on our facebook page to learn more about NAIDOC week. We’ll be posting celebratory historical tidbits and regular updates on the festivities in Australia throughout the week.
