Launching two books in Walmajarri

Watch the launch of two new non-commercial titles published by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, 'Jarrampa' and 'Big Fat Mummy Goanna'.

In late July, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation was proud to (virtually) attend the launch of two new non-commercial titles, 'Jarrampa' and 'Big Fat Mummy Goanna' (Purlka ngamaji Kakaji) which were celebrated by the local community at Fitzroy Crossing Baya Gawiy Buga yani Jandu Yani u Centre. Developed in workshops with children, families and Elders throughout 2019 with ILF Lifetime Ambassador Alison Lester and publisher Jane Godwin, the two books are published in Walmajarri and English and have been gifted to the community to be read and loved for years to come. The books were launched amidst much excitement as part of the centre’s belated celebrations for NAIDOC Week 2021.



Indigenous Literacy Day is proudly presented by the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, a charity with a vision of equity of opportunity for all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children living in remote Australia.
