Wantima acknowledges the diversity in Queensland Indigenous communities therefore it is advised that researchers talk to local elders, groups and historians when creating an educational program for a specific location.
These pages are a general introduction to Indigenous History. Activities are provided to help enhance knowledge on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history.
It is important to understand that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and history are not the same. I have tried to capture relevant time-frames and events wherever possible.
The manual can be subdivided into seven areas of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history.
Depending on time, abilities and interest, each section can be viewed individually or as one learning procedure, depending on time.
