Herstory First Nations playing cards

This special edition of Herstory was designed in collaboration with First Nations artist and designer Alysha Menzel, celebrating and amplifying Indigenous Australian voices. The deck spotlights both trailblazers throughout history, as well as emerging women to provide a resource to continually learn from and engage with Indigenous leaders and voices. In the year of the Voice, we thank you for your support.

We are proud to support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, with all net proceeds donated.

Literacy opens doors and provides fundamental skills that lead to lifelong opportunities. The Indigenous Literacy Foundation works with over 400 remote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia, providing tools and resources to better shape children’s literacy and future. With over 27,000 children supported, 120,000 resources delivered, and books published in over 30 First Nations languages, the impact of the ILF is crucial in creating a more equitable Australia. Through learning more about the inspiring, powerful women of the past and today, we can help those of the future.
