Planet MITS is a compilation of digital stories conceived, animated, and narrated by students from the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School, Australia.

The ideas and messages explored provide insights into the challenges and experiences associated with living and studying in Melbourne, away from families, and often remote communities. By centralising the student’s own voices, the stories serve to communicate their cultures, languages, values, interests, and histories to a wider audience.

The stories demonstrate the MITS values of culture, care, courage, and respect.

Willy-Willy is spoken in the Indigenous languages of Kriol, Djambarrpuyngu, and Iwaidja.

Tigerman is spoken in the Indigenous languages of Tiwi and Maillia.

Cus is spoken in the Indigenous languages of Murrinh Patha, Kriol, and Tiwi.

Rapper Girl is spoken in the Indigenous languages of Iwaidja, Kriol, and Djambarrpuyngu.
