Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and Traditional Owners can speak with cultural authority about the Country and land on which your school or early learning service is situated. It is inappropriate and disrespectful for others to talk about this knowledge without express permission.
Invite Elders and Traditional Owners to speak to students and staff about the histories and cultures of your local area as much as you can. They will greatly enhance learning experiences when they visit your school or early learning service.
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 Nations, language and kinship groups and communities.
