It’s hard to be what you can’t see.

Here in Australia, a lack of representation means a lack of role models for young Mob to look up to.

We’re here to change that. 

We’re putting a spotlight on Indigenous role models, elevating their success stories and showing the next generation there are no limits. We want to help these kids see what Blak excellence and strong leadership look like, to inspire them to realise their own greatness.

OUR STORY

From birth, the odds are stacked against Indigenous kids. In a country where First Nations people make up less than 5% of the population, Indigenous youth account for 80% of all 10-year-olds behind bars.

Systemic racism sees them taken away from their families and put in detention centres at 22 times the rate of non-Indigenous kids. This is a hard reality to grow up with. So where do our young Mob go to feel inspired?

Having faced his own uncomfortable truths, We Are Warriors founder Nooky recognised the need to create a platform to give our Mob something to aspire to, to unlock their own Warrior spirit and drive positive change.

Working with our Warriors to share their stories of resistance and resilience shows the young ones they’ve got options. In Australia, this kind of platform hasn’t existed before. Together, we’re building a movement, and we want to energise everyone to be a part of it.

This is just the beginning.
