Securing our rights securing our future

 

 

Yajilarra nhingi, mindija warrma (from dreams, let's make it reality) tells the story of First Nations women and girls—their strengths and their depth of knowledge, and their solutions to create a more inclusive and fairer nation.

This animation was produced by Carbon Creative, narrated by Shelley Morris and June Oscar, and with opening voice-overs of First Nations women and girls.

We invite you to share this animation. It can be used as a resource in workplaces, schools, and other settings to generate discussion and how you can take action. 

Following the screening, you may want to facilitate a discussion on some of the key themes of the animation and discuss how you can take action. Here are some conversation starters:

  • What do you think we could do individually or as an organisation to ensure the voices of First Nations women and girls are heard, listened to and responded to?
     
  • How could you/your organisation partner with First Nations women and girls?
     
  • Do you have representation of First Nations women in your workplace? Not only are they represented, but are they listened and responded to?
     
  • Does your workplace have dedicated career and employment pathways for First Nations women—which have been co-designed with First Nations women?
     
  • Have you thought and considered how to embed a First Nations gender sensitive approach in your workplace? Look at the Wiyi Yani U Thangani Principles for guidance.
     
  • How can you show support for Wiyi Yani U Thangani and what are the strategies you can put in place to spread the work of the Report and this animation?
