Description

Written by one of Australia’s most prominent Indigenous voices, 'Welcome to Country' is essential reading for every young Australian. The chapters cover pre-history, post-colonial history, language, kinship, knowledge, art, performance, storytelling, native title, the stolen generations, making a rightful place for first Australians and looking to the future for Indigenous Australia. This book is for the new Australian generations and works towards rectifying the wrongs of this country’s past. You will quickly appreciate how lucky we are to be the home of the world’s oldest continuing civilisation – which is both diverse and thriving in Australia today.
