  1. 1- National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee
    2- to remember the day we took over Austraila
    3- 1920- 1930

  2. 2. We have NAIDOC week to think of the first people to have been on the land and to say thank you and just think of aboriginal peoples

  3. 1) National Aboriginal Day Observance Committee
    I found this but thaty were missing out the I and I thought it meant Indigenous.

  4. 2. We have NAIDOC week to think of the first people to have been on the land and to say thank you and just think of aborigitnal peoples

  5. 1)National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
    2) To acknowledge the Aboriginals that we took over from.
    3)What I think the most important part of the time line was 1940-1955 because it stated facts about Aboriginal day being the Sunday before Australia Day.

  6. 1) National Aboriginal Islander Day Observance Celebration
    2) To recognise the Aboriginal peoples because we just came and took over their land.
    3) The most important place on the timeline for me was definitely 1940-1955 because it mentioned information about how the ‘Mourning Week’ was held.

  7. 2) Becuase we have to respect our custodians of this land and thus were originally the first people to live in Australia until we took over

  8. 2) So that we can have a whole week of thinking about the aboriginal culture and also think about all those custodians of our land.

  9. 2.NAIDOC week is an Australian observance lasting from the first Sunday in July until the following Sunday. NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

  10. 2) I think it because we just came over and took over there land but having NAIDOC week is showing this is still there land

  11. Q1) NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
    Q2) So the Aboriginals can have a week to be themselves and do what they want to do; hunt, paint, spear throwing. All things like that.
    Q3) The First Battle of Bull Run was the first major land battle of the war. It occurred near Manassas, Virginia. Union forces from Washington, DC totaling 28,450, under the command of General Irvin McDowell, attempted to surprise 32,230 Confederate troops.

  12. 1) NAIDOC stands for
    National
    Aboriginal and
    Islanders
    Day
    Of
    Culture

    2) To respect the custodians of this land which had there land taken from them when the English arrived in the first fleet.

    3) I think the most significant event is on Australia Day in 1938, when protesters marched through Sydney demanding respect.

  13. 1) NAIDOC means National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee.
    2) Australia has a NAIDOC week to celebrate the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
    3) I think the one that is the most important is the 1940~1955 one because instead of it being on Australia Day it was moved to another day or days for people to think more about NAIDOC and its cultures.

  14. 1. National Aborigines Indigenous Day Observance Committee. Or National Aborigines Day Committee.

    2. We have NADOC week because we need to celebrate the Aborigines because they are the custodians of the land and the English just took over so we need to say sorry in a way and that way is to dedicate a week to them.

    3. When the English changed NADOC day to the first Sunday of July because it shouldn’t just be a day of protesting it should be a day of celebration.

  15. 3.The most significant event in 1940-1955 because it stated facts about Aboriginal day being the Sunday before Australia Day.

  16. 3) Because they added the ‘I’ to NAIDOC to represent Torres Stait Islanders which I think is very significant

  17. 1) National Aborignal And Islanders Day Obervence Committee

    2) To acknowledge to the custodians of this land and pay our respects to the Aborignals for we where the one who came and took over the land. So it is important to show the Aborignals that we care about them because they are the original people’s of this land.

    3)

  18. 1) NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committe.

    2) To celebrate and acknowledge the traditions and cultures of aboriginal peoples.
