Indigenous Literacy Day

Indigenous Literacy Day is an annual celebration that takes place on the first Wednesday of September. It is a day to recognize and celebrate the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, cultures, and stories. The event was created in 2004 by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) to help promote literacy among Indigenous Australians. The ILF works with communities to provide resources and support for literacy programs, as well as hosting events such as book launches, author talks, and other activities. This year’s theme is “Celebrating Stories and Language”. Through this event, we can all come together to appreciate the importance of language and storytelling in our culture.
