Whose Country: exploring First Nations peoples languages map (7-13yrs)

TLF ID A002848

Learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages can help children build their understanding of land, water and people. This activity helps to assist the identification of the language group/s on which the school, youth group or home is situated. To understand local perspectives and support these activities, we recommend reaching out to the local Traditional Owners and First Nations peoples who can assist in knowledge sharing and understanding the local land, histories and culture. This is an important consideration to ensure that any reconciliation initiatives are being driven in a local, meaningful way. OUTCOMES of this learning activity are for children to: understand that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are the traditional custodians of Australia’s land, waterways and skies; learn that Australia is made up of many different communities of First Nations peoples and there is a variation between and within each group; appreciate the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia; and identify the language group in their local area.
