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.

The process of storytelling varies between cultures. In western cultures stories are told to convey a meaning, such as entertainment, a moral etc. In Aboriginal culture a story is to convey knowledge. While this may include a moral (particularly in the children's stories) they will also convey a lot of other information. So these stories are not about moral - who is right and who is wrong, but information on how to work across cultures, how to understand how others see the worlds, and the experience Aboriginal people have shared with their children, and your future clients.
