This year's theme is 'Voice, Treaty, Truth', and this week is not just about the history of our First Peoples, but also the history of all of us and of all of Australia. Let's work together for a shared future. #NAIDOC2019

This exhibition from Monash University Library Special Collections showcases some of the creativity of Indigenous communities in print.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a long history of resisting colonialism, fighting for their rights, and protesting injustice. Stories of these struggles for rights are well known within communities, having been passed on through oral traditions since 1788. They are recorded in Indigenous journalism, art, literature, academia, and now in the online landscape. These voices of protest have always been imaginative and resourceful, combining Federal advocacy with regional leadership, and engaging in direct action, community programs, consultation, and promoting cultural diversity.
Exhibition closing 22 June. The Gallery, Sir Louis Matheson Library. Don't miss out!
