50+ teaching resources you need for NAIDOC Week 2022 & FREE Printable resources.


Today, I would like to acknowledge the Yuggera people as the Traditional Owners of the beautiful land I am standing on today. From the mountains to the river, I open my heart and my eyes as I walk this land, listening, learning and caring for Country. I want to extend this respect to Elders; past, present and emerging and to all First Nations peoples reading this post today. We are all remembered here.


Before we begin, just a bit of a heads up that this post is LOOOOONNNG! I have divided it up into some smaller sections, just so it is easier to for you to digest and find what you are looking for, so be sure to use the 🖐🏽 drop-downs on the left, to see all of the resources under their certain headings. Nonetheless, this post is a beast! But on the upside, it means there are TONNES of resources for you to use just in time for NAIDOC Week and all throughout 2022 and beyond, so really it's a win!

And if you happen to make it all the way to the end, there are a couple of little cheeky FREEBIES I have made for you all as a big thank you for choosing to spend your time with me, supporting me, and for the the valuable work you are doing in your classrooms all year round. From the bottom of my heart, thank you :)

Just as a reminder, this post does contain sponsored content through the use of affiliate links through my proud partnerships and I want to thank each of you for continuing to use my affiliate links to support the work I do. As you know, each blog post is based on my own experiences, opinions, and what I have been taught, and does not represent all First Nations peoples or Communities. Please remember that, connecting with your local First Nations Community is always the most respectful way for you to embed First Nations content specific to your area.

I hope you love reading it as much as I have loved writing and sharing it with you, enjoy and happy embedding!

As term 3 comes around, many of you are beginning to prepare for your NAIDOC Week celebrations as a school and in your classrooms too, and what a special time it is! With so many of these celebrations having been in the works, planning and organising with Community and Elders for months and months now, finally coming to fruition.

Today, in this blog post, I want to share with you over 50. Yes that's right, more than 50, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teaching resources created by Elders and Community that you can use in your classroom to help you celebrate this year's theme of 'Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!' all throughout 2022 and beyond.

All of these resources (and more as I add them over the term) are all a part of my Teacher Resource Finder, which is a free resource I have made for teachers to be able to search for First Nations and Sustainability resources through a whole heap of categories, including; year groups, significant days, subjects, First Nations Countries and classroom themes, topics and so many more to come! So whenever you need to find a resource for your program, I hope my Teacher Resource Finder comes in handy for you, now and well into the future.

Alright, let's do this!
