It’s time to celebrate Indigenous Literacy Day! For the first time ever, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation invites primary and early learners, 3-11 years of age, across Australia to a very special Indigenous Literacy Day celebration presented in collaboration with the Sydney Opera House.

It’s time to move, shake and sing with a catchy melody sung by Australia’s favourite pop star, Jessica Mauboy – in two Indigenous languages, Tiwi, Mangarrayi, and English plus share a book reading of Yu Sabi Densdensbad? (Can you Dance?) in Kriol, by Cheryl Lardy and in English by Justine Clarke. Hosted by Indigenous author and performer Gregg Dreise and TV presenter Natalie Ahmat, this event gives our younger audiences a celebratory experience of Indigenous language and literacy. There is even a sneaky, cheeky visit by children’s author Andy Griffiths!
