Relationship with the land remains fundamental to the identity and way of life of many First Nations people.

 

For many First Nations people in Australia, land is much more than soil, rocks or minerals. It’s a living environment that sustains, and is sustained by, people and culture (Australian Museum 2021). Before colonisation, the reciprocal relationship between people and the land underpinned all other aspects of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Today, this relationship with the land remains fundamental to the identity and way of life of many First Nations people.
