Yarning Strong aims to reach out and engage all young people – both Indigenous and non-indigenous – and deepen their awareness and understanding of what it's like to be an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person living in Australia today.
Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's perspectives within the curriculum has long been considered best pedagogical practice for schools.
A number of the stories and themes address the impact intolerant views and racist behaviour can have. As well, the stories share insights into the richness of Indigenous cultures
