Aboriginal people and histories that shape our State
Celebrate the cultures, diversity and resilience of WA’s First Peoples, their ongoing contributions to the development of our State, and our shared future together.
Our State is home to over 60 Aboriginal language groups, millennia of unique traditions – and at times a difficult history of conflict and repression. Using rich historical sources from the State Library of WA’s collections, explore stories of courage and resistance and discover how active citizenship continues to pave the way towards reconciliation.
Produced in partnership with the State Library of WA, these resources support the WA Curriculum: HASS and English, as well as the cross-curriculum priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.
