In light of NAIDOC Week 2020, Pinterest is launching the Today Tab and the Pinterest Shop in Australia.
The launches recognise and honour the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples culture, and makes it easier for Pinners to discover their content.
The Today tab is a source of daily inspiration with curated topics and trending Pins, and features inspirational content from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creators, businesses and artists.
“It’s unique that Pinterest is connecting some of the world’s most remote communities, with new, global audiences,” says CEO of ANKA Christina Davidson.
“The boards created for the online exhibition acknowledge the extraordinary renaissance of the longest living culture on earth and speaks to the heart of what the NAIDOC Week represents this year, Always Was, Always Will Be.”
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been trading for over 60,000 years, however the pandemic has left many Indigenous businesses facing an uncertain future.
The post-pandemic period will prove crucial to achieving successful outcomes for both the Indigenous business sector and the broader Indigenous community.
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s culture and remind Aussies to support and shop from Indigenous businesses.
