Celebrating First Nations Knowledge

(Return to Science Week 2020 – The Ocean home page)


The organisers of National Science Week have supplied several links that celebrate Indigenous knowledge.

Throughout our past, and in the present day, First Nations people and their wisdom have made significant contributions to the development of science and technology in Australia. Indigenous people are the first scientists, engineers, innovators and carers of the land and sea and only through learning from their experiences is it possible to continue to develop science in Australia in a sustainable and culturally significant way.
