In celebration of NAIDOC Week, two members of our Indigenous Staff Network have appeared in a video answering questions about their culture.

Taking inspiration from the ABC series, You can't ask that, Feoina Kelly and Liam Tucker talk about what it means to be Indigenous, the importance of NAIDOC Week and staying connected to culture.

"Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have such great connection to kinship and family ties and a deadly connection to country," Liam said.

On NAIDOC Week, Feoina says it's a celebration that puts Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture front and centre and brings Australians together to celebrate their culture.
