Free resources

Below is a list of ideas and resources to help you on your journey of educating and inspiring your children on Aboriginal culture - please feel free to share with anyone!

 

Great resources for Educators:
 

 

  • A Wurundjeri Culture resource - A wonderful resource to increase your knowledge on local Aboriginal culture.
     

Great resources for your rooms:

  • Aboriginal Flag Flagworld have a good range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags in different sizes that can be purchased online:

     

  • Marngrook - Marngrook, an Aboriginal possum-skin ‘game ball’, that was played by Aboriginal people in Victoria before settlement. Why don’t you buy an authentic marngrook made by Aboriginal women here in Melbourne, and get the children to play some games with it? Wonderfully soft and children-friendly, a marngrook is a great tool to connect our children with the local Aboriginal culture. Our marngrooks were made by Bernadette Atkinson from Koori Heritage Trust in the city (They come in different sizes, we are using medium size. You might have to order one to get made for you.)
