Who is leaving a legacy in your Community?

In celebration of this years’ NAIDOC week theme 'Because of Her, We Can', NITV is creating a digital photo album of remarkable Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander women.

Over NAIDOC we will showcase a diverse range of inspiring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women across Australia chosen by their loved ones.
