Custodians Of The Land
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people are the first inhabitants of Australia – there were once more than 500 Indigenous ‘nations’ across the continent. ATSI people have a strong understanding of the land and its animal inhabitants, which they used to decide where to live.
