Welcome to the Learning to Ngangaanha website - a hub of information and resources to help primary teachers embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and perspectives in classrooms and schools around Australia.


My name is Jordyn and I am a proud Wiradjuri, Ngemba and Paakantji woman and primary teacher. I created the Instagram account @learning_to_ngangaanha in 2019 with the aim to support other teachers to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, cultures, languages, beliefs and protocols. This website grew from a need to organise and store the resources I recommend on my Instagram account (as well as the resources I create) in one easy-to-access space. Ngangaanha is a Wiradjuri word meaning to "look after" or "care for". Learning to Ngangaanha (look after) is a reminder to continue protecting First Nations knowledge, and this includes ensuring that it is passed on to future generations.


I would like to acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the original custodians of lands, waterways and skies across what is now known as Australia. This continent has been home to First Nations peoples for thousands of years. I respect the cultures, languages, traditions and beliefs of the many different nation groups of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and am thankful for the ancient knowledge of this land that has been passed on to me. I respect the determination, strength and resilience of our Elders and thank them for protecting our cultures and keeping our identities strong.
