Indigenous Literacy Day celebrations

Indi Kindi celebrating Indigenous Literacy Day

Indi Kindi celebrated Indigenous Literacy Day with the Borroloola Early Years Network. The day involved cultural singing, dancing, crafts and storytelling with Elders.

It was a great day and we are delighted to continue working with our friends at The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) gifting books to families. Books provided by ILF are tailored to Indigenous culture, with 40% of books created by Indigenous authors and illustrators.

Having access to books allows Indi Kindi children to open up so many doors and unlock their full potential. Partnering with ILF means children in our rural Indigenous communities can learn early literacy and first language in a culturally relevant way.

In remote Indigenous communities access to books are scarce and literacy levels are much lower than other areas of Australia. The Indi Kindi program strives to give young children opportunities to improve educational learning and overall wellbeing, while maintaining connection to land, art and culture.
