On Country: Connect, Work, Celebrate

Jigalong Rangers near Durba Hills

On Country: Connect, Work, Celebrate was on show at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra from 22 November 2013 to 20 July 2014.

On Country was an inspiring exhibition that showcased contemporary Indigenous land and sea management  practices across Australia.

By blending millennia of traditional knowledge about ecology with modern technology and research, these practices are helping to protect Australia’s fragile environments for our future.

Indigenous land and sea management practices build a connection to Country and this connection is strengthened through caring for Country, being on Country, and celebrating Country.

Warning: This exhibition website includes images and names of deceased people that may cause distress to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
