What do you need to know to prosper as a people for at least 65,000 years? The First Knowledges series provides a deeper understanding of the expertise and ingenuity of Indigenous Australians.
Exploring practices such as Songlines, architecture and design, land management, astronomy, botany and law, this series brings together two very different ways of understanding the natural world: one ancient, the other modern.
Each book is a collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous writers and editors. The series is ublished in partnership with the National Museum of Australia, and edited by Margo Neale, senior Indigenous curator.
