To accompany the book, Culture is Life has developed education resources for teachers, parents & carers.

The resources help to unpack themes in the book, including the notion of Terra Nullius and the impacts of colonisation on Australia’s First Peoples. We hope the resources will help readers to connect with First Nations cultures and acknowledge our true shared history.

‘This book is a reflection of me. I’m incredibly hopeful. I choose to be positive, to help us heal as a nation.’
