Aboriginal history extends over at least 50,000 years. Knowledge, art and rituals have been passed down through generations to create a rich tapestry of cultural heritage Äì diverse, complex and spiritual. The relationship to the land or country is central to Indigenous culture and to the issues that are important to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today.
