‘What was before Lord Vestey born and I born?
It was blackfella country.’
Vincent Lingiari (Wattie Creek 1966)
Australia’s First Peoples have been living on the Australian continent for millenia.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia is made up of many different and distinct groups, each with their own culture, customs, language and laws. They are the world’s oldest surviving culture; cultures that continue to be expressed in dynamic and contemporary ways.
