What are your plans for NAIDOC Week: 3 – 10 July?
Will your children and little tots listen to Indigenous Australian music and have a go at playing traditional Aboriginal clap sticks?
What about a day where everyone wears red, yellow & black?
Will you read them dreamtime stories?
You could host an educational day all about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
A little info on why NAIDOC Week is so important…
Did you know that in the 1920s many Aboriginal groups wanted the wider community to be aware of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians? From this NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) later emerged.
Today NAIDOC activities are held across Australia in schools, workplaces and public arenas the first week of July. This year it’s from Sunday 3rd to Sunday 10th July.
How LitL will support your celebrations and acknowledgements of NAIDOC Week….
To show my support, I am offering you a credit note to the value of 10% on any Indigenous resources or puzzle sales over $100 until 10th July (when NAIDOC week ends).
Whether your having an indoor or outdoor picnic or corroboree, reading to the children or encouraging the younger ones to learn better with puzzles, LitL has some wonderful Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources. These include instruments, recycled mats with original Aboriginal designs (exclusive to LitL), puzzles, wall charts, cushions, felt stories, Aboriginal Flag curtains, you name it!
