NAIDOC Week 2019, Australia’s annual NAIDOC Week started yesterday As Voice Treaty Truth across the country with both Indigenous and non-indigenous folk taking time out to celebrate this First Nations event. Indigenous Australians in Bendigo call for a treaty.

Bendigo's Indigenous community have renewed calls for a treaty as they gathered on Monday to officially launch NAIDOC week in the region.
