First Australians | Sections | Share Our Pride Local people may have a preference for how they are described, for example at a function or event. If you’re not sure of a person’s particular language group and can’t find out, it’s usually okay to simply acknowledge them as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. The easiest way to find out is to ask the person themselves – they will see this as showing respect and they’ll appreciate it. Connection with country is crucial to the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Usually a ‘Welcome to Country’ will occur at the beginning of any major public meeting. An ‘Acknowledgment of Country’ can be done by any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australians that are not traditional owners of the country you are meeting on, or by non-Indigenous Australians. Acknowledgements can be done at the beginning of any meeting. Acknowledge the traditional owners/custodians.Pay respect to their Elders past and present.

Australian Heritage - the magazine A Nation sub-divided The dotted lines that mark the borders of Australia’s states and territories, learned by many of us from plastic templates that we arduously drew around in primary school, may seem long-fixed and of little interest. But each of these lines has a story that reflects a stage in our history as a nation, as David Taylor writes. Soon after the colony at Sydney Cove was settled in 1788, the Deputy Judge-Advocate, Captain David Collins read the royal commissions to Captain Arthur Phillip, appointing Phillip as the governor and defining New South Wales and its dependencies thus: The extent of British territory in New South Wales until 1825. The question as to why the western boundary at 135ºE was chosen has been a topic of controversy for many years. The Portuguese had been in Timor since 1516, and the Dutch since 1686. Britain had two reasons to be cautious. Concerns about Britains claim to Australia's northern coast prompted Governor Darling to push the boundary westward.

The Humanities - History - Cross-curriculum priorities There are three cross curriculum priorities in the Australian Curriculum: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culturesAsia and Australia’s engagement with AsiaSustainability. The cross-curriculum priorities are embedded in the curriculum and will have a strong but varying presence depending on their relevance to each of the learning areas. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, rich and diverse. A conceptual framework based on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ unique sense of Identity has been developed as a structural tool for the embedding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures within the Australian curriculum. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures.
