“NAIDOC Week is incredibly important to me as it not only celebrates the history and achievements of my people and culture but also allows communities to come together to reflect, heal and share powerful stories. TikTok is an inclusive space where these voices are elevated and can make a real impact. I’m so thrilled to be part of TikTok’s NAIDOC Week program alongside some very talented First Nations creators!”
