The Narragunnawali program has tools and resources for schools and early learning services to take action towards reconciliation between non-First Nations Australians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Narragunnawali (pronounced narra-gunna-wally) is a word from the language of the Ngunnawal people, Traditional Owners of the land on which Reconciliation Australia’s Canberra office is located, meaning alive, wellbeing, coming together and peace. We pay our respects and thank the United Ngunnawal Elders Council for giving us permission to use the word narragunnawali

The Narragunnawali online platform is free to access and provides practical ways to introduce meaningful reconciliation initiatives in the classroom, around the school and with the community. Through the Narragunnawali platform, schools and early learning services can develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), and teachers and educators can access professional learning and curriculum resources to support the implementation of reconciliation initiatives.

Narragunnawali is a program of Reconciliation Australia. Reconciliation Australia is an independent, national not-for-profit organisation promoting reconciliation by building stronger relationships, respect and trust between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We have worked with education providers and organisations in each State and Territory to develop a program that doesn’t duplicate any of the great work that is being done to build reconciliation across the country. Key stakeholders include Indigenous Education Consultative Bodies, the Government, Catholic and Independent school sectors and of course teachers, parents, students and community members.

The Narragunnawali team would like to thank Gilimbaa Indigenous Creative Agency and Digital Makers for their contributions to the design and maintainence of the online platform. 

In the language of the Wakka Wakka people of Central Queensland, Gilimbaa means 'today'. 'Today' represents the ambition of the Gilimbaa team to keep Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and community at the forefront in current creative innovation and design. 

We're always looking to improve the Narragunnawali online platform (currently v7.6.1). If you have any ideas, feedback or suggestions, consider completing our User Experience Survey, or please contact us
