Created by First Nations artist and storyteller Maria Watson-Trudgett, a Wiradjuri woman.
Bila and Ngurambang, are words from Wiradjuri language, meaning river and country. Wiradjuri people, also known as river people, were skilled hunter–fisher–gatherers, who lived and... moved along the rivers and surrounding landscape, sourcing food for survival and Caring for Country. For tens of thousands of years, First Nations people have managed their land and its inhabitants to ensure environmental harmony and sustainability. Keeping balance in the environment is central to our people’s way of thinking, being, and connection to spiritual and cultural identity.
The impacts of climate change are exacerbating our ability to protect and maintain significant biodiversity across Australia and the globe. Biodiversity is everyone’s responsibility. It is crucial to broaden our awareness, compassion, and respect to embrace all living creatures and the natural environment. Biodiversity will not be maintained through inaction - Stand with First Nations people to Care for Country.

This hoodie is so soft and snuggly, the art work is too deadly
My team mate and I got lots if compliments on this t shirt. It is very long in the XXL size that I bought. Mainly because I am short and XXL.
I am very happy with my NAIDOC 2023 hoodie. I buy one each year from Life Apparel and am never disappointed. Warm, comfortable, ethically and sustainably sourced materials.
The t shirt is brilliant - love it!!!
Great shirt. Received positive comments from others when wearing it. Helped give voice to our first Australians.
T-shirt, Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! | black
Love the polo shirt. The artwork is beautiful and the shirt is exactly as it was described. I ordered a larger size than I needed just in case it was a small fit but this was unnecessary.
I purchased the dreamtime shirt due to its great design and the phenemonal artwork and dot work and the stories behind it. The red in the centre reminds me of the outback sands and the handprints with the aboriginal flag colours are a nice touch.
