Racing SA are proud to take part in this year’s National NAIDOC Week celebrations and will be sharing the stories of several thoroughbred racing participants in SA.

This week, stories of Pintupi-Luritja woman Celestine Rowe, Adnyamathanha and Luritja mother of three Letisha McKenzie and Adynamathanha man Phil Coulthard will feature on Racing SA’s social media channels.

National NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia in the first week of July each year, to celebrate and recognise the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for all Australians to learn about First Nations cultures and histories and participate in celebrations of the oldest, continuous living cultures on earth.

Stay tuned to the Racing SA social media channels to hear Celestine’s, Letisha’s and Phil’s stories!
