Noongar Storytelling

For Primary Schools

The smash-hit Noongar Storytelling Project is back to be part of your NAIDOC Week 2022 classroom activities, with four newly captured stories!


Led by Noongar language reclamation powerhouse Kylie Bracknell of Boomerang and Spear, our suite of videos capture Noongar children’s stories being told on Noongar boodjar, about Noongar boodjar.

Storytellers include Derek Nannup, Annie Dabb and Ian ‘Moopa’ Wilkes, and the videos will be accompanied by Education Kits to help you extend your students’ learning through classroom activities and extra information on language, the storytellers and locations.


The suite of videos will be accessible via direct link during the first two weeks of Term 3, Mon 18 July until Fri 29 July. 
Register below to receive the link at the start of Term. Participation in this event is free!


This year’s NAIDOC theme is Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!, focussing on deep and respectful collaboration between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. By celebrating Noongar knowledge and language in our lives and classrooms we can collectively Show Up for meaningful change, and cultivate a deep respect for Noongar culture and this boodja that we all care for.

Each of our videos was filmed at an iconic WA location such as Kaarta Koomba [Kings Park] and Nanyi-Yandjip [Yanchep National Park] and relate to our natural world and connection to boodjar. This year we've captured four new stories to add to the seven filmed across 2020 and 2021. This brings the total suite to eleven kwobidak stories to share with your students. Watch them all or pick and choose!

The suite of stories will be available to registered schools only, to use as part of NAIDOC Week 2022 activities. The stories are suitable for all ages, with education Kits for Lower and Upper Primary respectively available, to expand on the use of Language and Noongar connection to boodjar [land].

These videos connect directly with Language and HASS curricula, in addition to cross-curriculum priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.

The Noongar Storytelling Project is produced by Boomerang and Spear and Perth Festival as part of Connect: Creative Learning.
