Indigenous Language Map
This map is just one representation of many other map sources that are available for Aboriginal Australia. Using published resources available between 1988–1994, this map attempts to represent all the language, social or nation groups of the Indigenous people of Australia. It indicates only the general location of larger groupings of people which may include smaller groups such as clans, dialects or individual languages in a group. Boundaries are not intended to be exact. This map is NOT SUITABLE FOR USE IN NATIVE TITLE AND OTHER LAND CLAIMS.

This is an interactive narrative site to develop courses using Indigenous Stories.  Under the Course menu you can use the courses set up in your discipline. A teacher can select or create a playlist for their course. Students can join a course and then select a playlist within that course.

We suggest that teachers read the material under Resources. Particularly consider the issue of creating a culturally safe environment for your students, so that the reactions and attitudes of your students is not harmful to others in the learning environment

This website is designed to help teachers create tutorials based on the stories collected from the Creating cultural empathy and challenging attitudes through Indigenous narratives project.

The narrative collection project was led by Edith Cowan University. This project included The Combined Universities Centre for Rural Health, Curtin University of Technology, The University of Notre Dame, The University of Western Australia and Health Consumers’ Council (WA).
