NAIDOC Week posters of famous Indigenous people

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held around Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  One of the ways the National NAIDOC Committee suggests we celebrate  is to start your own hall of fame featuring Indigenous role models or study a famous Indigenous Australian. So I’ve done my own studying and created some posters to help kids and teachers celebrate famous and influential Indigenous people.  You can purchase them on this website or at my TPT store.

There are 35 fun posters of famous and influential Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from a wide variety of eras and fields including; sport, politics, art, acting, activism, writing, music, television presenters and more.

This set features; David Unaipon, Cathy Freeman, Neville Bonner, Adam Goodes, Albert Namatjira, Samantha Harris, Evonne Goolagong Cawley, Lowitja O’Donoghue, Linda Burney, Jessica Mauboy, Oodgeroo Noonuccal, Eddie Mabo, Ash Barty, Patty Mills, Nova Peris, Jack Charles, Mandawuy Yunupingu, David Gulpilil, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri, Pearl Gibbs, Stan Grant, Geoffery Gurrumul Yunupingu, Deborah Mailman, Noel Pearson, Archie Roach, Tony Armstrong, Johnathon Thurston, Ernie Dingo, Lionel Rose, Christine Anu, Ken Thaiday Snr., Danzal Baker (Baker Boy), Truganini and Gladys Elphick.

Each poster includes an original illustration of the person, the person’s name and the nation or island they belong to and a quick summary of the persons achievements. They are A4 size but can be printed at larger sizes (A3, A2) without loss of quality.  If you’d like them for your school or classroom, you can purchase them on this website or at my TPT store.

If you want to celebrate more famous Australian’s, I have also just finished a series of posters of famous Australian artists that are also in the stores now.

Art history printables for kids

Studying the art and lives of famous artists helps kids understand art, connect with history and learn big lessons about life. It’s important, but can be a little dry. That’s why I’ve been working on some kid-friendly resources to make famous artists accessible and fun.  My aim was FAMOUS ARTIST FUN! I hope I lived up to it.

All these resources are available in my website store and in my TPT store .  I’m creating new resources all the time so follow my TPT store if you don’t want to miss new products.
