Today I join many others in saluting the first nations of our land.

An excellent coloured poster size map (small or large) depicting the language, tribal and nation groups of Australian Indigenous peoples is available for purchase from the Australian Institute of Aborigine and Torres Strait Islander Studies. The map does not claim precision, but relies on published works to depict the multi-faceted mosaic of human habitation in this land for thousands of years before European settlement.
Copyright restrictions prevent the map from being represented here, but a visit to the site will give you an idea of the nature of the map and how to purchase it.
