Shire of East Pilbara 2024 NAIDOC Ball coming this month


The Shire of East Pilbara 2024 NAIDOC Ball is coming this month and will be held on Saturday 22 June 2024 at the East Pilbara Arts Centre. This esteemed event promises an evening of celebration and recognition of First Nations peoples, businesses, and organisations.

This event is free for High School aged students and offers as part of the ticket entertainment, food, non-alcoholic drinks and a photo booth. The NAIDOC Ball is proudly sponsored by Onsite, Cleanaway, Northwest Alliance, and Warrikal with support from the Shire of East Pilbara.

More than 200 people are expected to attend the event which Shire President Anthony Middleton said, represents an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the rich heritage, resilience, and contributions of all our First Nations people.

“I encourage everyone to nominate First Nations peoples, businesses and organisations in the East Pilbara, who deserve to be recognised for their achievements,” Cr Middleton said.

“We would love to start a platform for spotlighting the incredible people organisations and work that deserves to be recognised in our community at the NAIDOC Ball.

“If you have any First Nations individuals or organisations who deserve to be recognised, please see the link below and share and the Shire of East Pilbara will be proud to acknowledge those community members or organisations throughout the celebrations.”

This year's theme celebrates the unyielding spirit of First Nations communities including our Marble Bar, Warralong, Gooda Binya Nullagine, Irrangadji, Jigalong, Punmu, Parnngurr and Kiwirrkurra and Kunawarratji and Newman residents. The fire represents the enduring strength and vitality of Indigenous cultures, passed down through generations despite the challenges faced. It is a symbol of connection to the land, to each other, and to the rich tapestry of traditions that define Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.


"Blak, Loud and Proud" encapsulates the celebration of Indigenous identity, empowering us to stand tall in our heritage and assert our place in the modern world. This theme calls for a reclamation of narratives, an amplification of voices, and an unwavering commitment to justice and equality. For more details visit
