My name is Fionna and I am an Early Childhood Educator. I hear a lot of questions about How to Embed Indigenous Culture into Everyday Practice ?
Resources are often expensive and as a result are kept for special celebrations. I decided to create affordable resources that are durable and can be used in everyday settings.
I have designed a range of resources that can be utilised as loose parts in any learning environment. The first in the collection is Indigenous Themed.
About the Artists
JIJAKA is a group of Indigenous artists that are known collectively as Jikaka.
JIJAKA is an Aboriginal word meaning "kangaroo”.
Jijaka’s colourful, contemporary art tells the stories of desert and coastal tribes who have lived on the Australian continent for more than 40,000 years.
Their corroboree ceremonies trace the ancient Dreamtime journeys of spirit ancestors, as they travel the vast Australian landscape.
Royalties from Jijaka sales support the Nangala Project, to relieve poverty and disadvantage amongst Australian Indigenous children and their families through creating locally engaged & sustainable opportunities.
Jijaka is a collection of artworks that were developed by a collective of Aboriginal artists working for the Jumbana Group over the course of 20+ years.
All works within the Jijaka archive are now part of the National Museum of Australia's collection and as such we do not credit individual Aboriginal artists with individual artworks
