Home in the Torres Strait
Lag | Meta | Aus explored the culture and history of Australia's most northerly region, the Torres Strait. The words lag, meta and aus translate as ‘home’ in the region’s three Indigenous languages. For thousands of years Torres Strait Islanders lived and prospered in their homeland. In 2014, even though most Islanders lived on mainland Australia, they still associated the Torres Strait with home.
