Empowering tomorrow's Indigenous Australian marine leaders.

Happy NAIDOC Week from ATSIMS

Happy NAIDOC week 2016 from the ATSIMS program! In celebration of NAIDOC week, we have put together a special video:

Dreaming tracks crisscross Australia tracing the journeys of ancestral spirits as they created the land, animals and lores. These dreaming tracks are sometimes called ‘Songlines’ which is the theme for 2016 NAIDOC week. Songlines connect people to Country and the Country to people. “The land owns us, we don’t own it” – Max Lenoy, 2016.

Check out the ATSIMS NAIDOC week video celebrating the history and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and connections to the Great Barrier Reef. Tag people you know in the video and please share with friends.
