Description

Yarning Strong aims to reach out and engage all young people – both indigenous and non-indigenous – and deepen their awareness and understanding of what’s it’s really like to be an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person living in contemporary Australia.

The series provides explicit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s perspectives, which has long been considered best pedagogical practice for schools. Yarning Strong offers a comprehensive and accessible resource that educators can use without fear of causing offence or perpetuating inaccurate stereotypes.
