Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have diverse and distinct cultures within the Australian context. The latter phrase refers to an Aboriginal person from NSW; with the former being from Queensland. Aboriginal peoples are separate and distinct from Torres Strait Islander peoples. Never make assumptions about identity, be guided by the manner in which people identify themselves.

The ongoing revival of aboriginal art in Australia is emblematic of the nation's complex history, and the often fraught relationship between Australia's settlers and its native population.

Australia’s history is highly focused on the European settlement and everything that followed; however, the country has long been inhabited by the Aboriginal people. This book features stories upon stories, alongside prose and poetry, from around 150 Nungas, telling their very real stories, many of which have never been published. From the imposition of clothes, employment and education to land rights and gender discrimination, each story illustrates the destruction of their culture.
