Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) people are the first inhabitants of Australia – there were once more than 500 Indigenous ‘nations’ across the continent. ATSI people have a strong understanding of the land and its animal inhabitants, which they used to decide where to live. In this book, students will investigate how Indigenous knowledge and practices are linked to sustainable use of resources and how their ways of living were influenced by their environment.
