NAIDOC Week is a time to reflect and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

 To celebrate NAIDOC Week and recognise its 2021 theme Heal Country!, Hardie Grant Explore asked several First Nations authors and artists about their publishing experiences and the impact of storytelling on national heritage and future generations. 

 Read the full interviews and author profiles in our NAIDOC Week Q&A series, featuring Marcia Langton, Thomas Mayor, Lakkari Pitt, Wayne Quilliam and Victor Steffensen.
