"NAIDOC Week is a time for different clans and nations to come together and celebrate who we are," she said. "I look forward to seeing the celebrations in Canterbury-Bankstown."

Mayor Khal Asfour said NAIDOC Week was a time for people of all backgrounds to recognise the contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

"This is the perfect opportunity for us to celebrate the history and achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and I encourage everyone to take part," he said.
