Big Books Project, Indij Readers

Indij Readers develops and publishes contemporary Indigenous literacy materials for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students learning to read and write.

The aim of Indij Readers’ stories is two-fold: to help Indigenous and non-Indigenous students (‘little fullas and big fullas’) learn to read, and to encourage and support teachers to explore contemporary Indigenous perspectives and issues with their students.

The Nelson Meers Foundation supported the Indij Readers “Big Books” project. “Big Books” are large size books used by teachers as an aid to teaching the “For Little Fullas, For Big Fullas” series, a collection of stories taken from urban and rural communities around NSW.
