Welcome to our post with some NAIDOC 2023 Book Recommendations! The NAIDOC theme of “For Our Elders” is a powerful one. The role that First Nations Elders play in community is important in sharing and continuing connection to culture, language, Country, Lore and history.
These books will support readers from all ages to learn about and understand First Nations Elders roles, importance and place… and how we can work together “for our Elders”.
Books for Middle and Young Adult Readers
Books for Adults
Most of the book links on this page go back to First Nations bookstores and businesses: FISH Enterprises, Koori Curriculum, Riley Callie Resources, Magabala Books and Yarn Strong Sista. Each of the websites have different and unique books in their collection and are all worth a look through- the books in each are comprehensive with some similarities, but many different. We encourage you to support local, Australian First Nations businesses this NAIDOC day and beyond.
