ATSI Significant Dates

Nunga Week 2020

Our 2020 Nunga Week program booklet (PDF, 1651.22 KB) is now available.

Nunga Week was established as a time where Council would celebrate the many and varied contributions that our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities make to our communities every day. Taking these celebrations away from other special dates provides a special focus at a very grass roots level. It is an exciting time to join in a range of activities in the Port Adelaide Enfield region.

Other events

Throughout the year there are a number of significant dates relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. On these dates there are a range of events that are held throughout the country, in Adelaide and in the Port Adelaide Enfield Council region. Some of these events are large scale with many people attending and others smaller community based events. Most events are open to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people and attending them provides an opportunity for gaining a deeper cultural understanding of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders people.
