First Nations women have a story to tell, one that stands as a testament to resilience and strength. Their lives are a celebration of the enduring power of First Nations people and culture. Each woman holds wisdom that transcends generations, and we honour each as a trailblazer who paves the path for each of us that follows. They serve as our inspiration, guiding lights, and a source of reassurance as we continue to work towards preserving our traditions and creating a better future for the next generations.
With the upcoming referendum, this is a crucial time to listen to, celebrate, and amplify First Nation voices. We are so excited and proud to share our second iteration of Herstory playing cards. Herstory is an ongoing project created by Nina in 2020, with the aim to recognise the achievements of women throughout history. This special edition spotlights First Nations women from our country’s history, and helps amplify Indigenous Australian voices at this pivotal moment. Each card features an inspiring woman, researched and hand drawn, in an effort to better recognise their contributions and inspire those of the future.
