Six essential things to watch for NAIDOC Week 2021

We're spoilt for choice with all the great Indigenous-created content on TV, but these titles across Netflix, NITV, SBS, ABC and Stan are essential.

The theme of NAIDOC Week 2021 (4 – 11 July) is ‘Heal Country!’ – calling for stronger measures to recognise, protect, and maintain all aspects of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage. Celebrations are held across Australia each July, and invite participation from Australians of all walks of life.

Watching First Nations made and themed television content is one easy and meaningful way to participate. Here’s a very personal list of six things to watch, as well as some other suggestions at the end. Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtags #NAIDOC2021 and #HealCountry.
