Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture & Identity

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture & Identity

Life Without Barriers works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children across Australia. Cultural connectedness is vital and we have given a public commitment to honouring this goal through our Reconciliation Action Plans.

We are committed to reconciliation and improving outcomes and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the traditional custodians of our country and holders of the world’s oldest living culture. Although there have been many significant changes in the lands, social structures, cultural and life circumstances of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, there still exists very unique cultures that are the birth right of every Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander child, adult and community.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s right to learn about, participate in and practice the unique culture of their family, community and heritage.
