Mount Isa wrapped up a successful Naidoc Week with the street march on Friday followed by the Mob FM Family Fun Day at the Skate Park.
Over 400 people marched from Outback at Isa to the Park after enjoying breakfast on Friday.
This year's NAIDOC theme is Heal Country which calls for greater protections for lands, waters, sacred and cultural heritage sites.
The NWHHS said their staff had a great time with the Mount Isa community at the Family Fun Day, which featured live entertainment, and food, information, and arts and crafts stalls.
"Staff were on hand including members of our Indigenous Liaison Officer team, Dr Smrdhi Sarachandran (Paediatrician), Clinical Nurse Consultant for Diabetes Diana Malureanu, Advanced Health Workers, Executive Director Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Christine Mann, Indigenous Workforce Coordinator Shannon Ah Sam and EBSO Synara Rankine Johnson," the NWHHS said.
"We loved having a range of staff on hand to talk about health and careers in health."
The week opened with flag-raising ceremonies, including one at Mount Isa Police Station, and Gidgee Healing hosted its annual seniors luncheon on Wednesday while the Mount Isa Amateur Netball Association also paid tribute saying one in 10 of their members were Indigenous.
Warren King hosted a census information stall at the Family Fun Day with the Australian Bureau of Statistics and local stakeholders talking of the importance of correctly counting Indigenous residents in the August census.
