Indigenous Literacy Day is here!

Indigenous Literacy Day is here!

Indigenous Literacy Day is held annually and celebrates the diversity and vibrancy of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.

This year marks the 11th year of Indigenous Literacy Day and the 2021 theme is Celebrating Stories and Language.

In celebration of this event, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation is hosting a free virtual program from 9am today. Viewers can watch up to 60 inspiring 2-minute videos, featuring various Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - from Elders and children in remote communities to individuals such as Jessica Mauboy and Archie Roach.

A free 25-minute pre-recorded event is also available for primary and early educators. The video features performer and author Gregg Dreise and pop singer Jessica Mauboy.

The videos will continue to be available for up to 12 months.
