Introduction to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Geography

'For Aboriginal people there is literally no life without the land. The land is where our ancestors came from in the Dreamtime, and it is where we shall return. The land binds our fathers, ourselves and our children together. If we lose our land, we have literally lost our lives and spirits, and no amount of social welfare or compensation can ever make it up to us.'

Galarrwuy Yunupingu, Aboriginal leader, land rights activist and 1978 Australian of the Year
