What educators are saying

This resource is FANTASTIC! I cannot wait to put them on display in my library. I enquired about a black & white version and the lovely seller responded promptly. Highly recommend!
These are great. I printed them in A5 for the students to use in an integrated Indigenous/ Biography writing unit. Students loved them.


35 fun posters of famous and influential Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from a wide variety of eras and fields including; sport, politics, art, acting, activism, writing, music, television presenters and more. They make great decorations for NAIDOC week or any time to introduce kids to Indigenous role models and spark conversations.
