Elders and Traditional Owners Share Histories and Cultures

1869 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Develop meaningful and ongoing relationships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, and people recognised in the community as Traditional Owners. Invite local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and Traditional Owners, to share their histories and culture in classrooms.

Develop relationships and invite Elders and Traditional Owners to your school or early learning service to speak to students and staff about their histories and cultures. 

Elders are community members who can speak, and share certain knowledge, with the highest level of authority. 

Traditional Owners can speak with cultural authority about the Country and land on which your school or early learning service is situated. 

Respecting diversity in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures

Talking about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture as a general group can be disrespectful. There are hundreds of unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, Nations, language and kinship groups and communities.
