The Little Red Yellow Black resources

The Little Red Yellow Black Book provides an introduction to the rich cultures and histories of Australia’s First Peoples.

These curriculum resources are currently being updated and will be made available again soon. 

Acknowledging the unique place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians, AIATSIS has developed this teaching resource to assist secondary educators to implement and embed the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cross-curriculum priority into their planning, teaching and assessment.

Each resource includes links to the national curriculum and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures organising ideas. They cover a range of subjects and include activities, worksheets and suggestions on assessment, with step-by-step instructions on how to deliver the lesson. The lessons may be used as one-off lessons or can be considered as units of work covering a number of lessons. We acknowledge that lessons are dynamic and we welcome feedback on how these resources can be improved.

Teachers are strongly encouraged to seek advice from local Traditional Owners, Elders and community members, and draw on local contexts where possible.

AIATSIS acknowledges the work of Ally Chumley in the development of these resources.
