Indigenous Australian Communication Board

For NAIDOC week in 2020, our founder Nikita created a NAIDOC communication board so that Indigenous Australians had free access to a basic communication system. Communication difficulties are also experienced by Indigenous Australians, however there were no communication systems that were Indigenous-friendly. Nikita pioneered the first systems and has continued to update it.

 

This year, Nikita created a brand new communication board for everyday use, not just during NAIDOC week. It can be translated into any Indigenous language* and is ally friendly. It is completely free to download, just click on the image and it will take you to the document. Questions? Please send us an email.

*Not all Indigenous languages are easily available nor do they have language to translate all words on the board.
