NAIDOC Week is the culmination of a long history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander effort to bring their issues of concern to the attention of Governments and the general public.

From 1924 many attempts had been made to establish a national day, and in 1957 the National Aborigines' Day Observance Committee(NADOC) was formed with the support of State and Federal Governments, the churches and major Aboriginal organisations.
