Indigenous Australia Large Laminated 119 x 84


This map presents work carried out by the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS).  It attempts, using all the published resources available at the time of production (1988-1994), to represent all the language or tribal or nation groups of the indigenous people of Australia. The regions were analysed by using the watershed basins as a template and then superimposing all the groups on that base and determining where such factors as culture, language and trade indicated the relationships between groups to be. The map indicates only the general location of larger groupings of people. Boundaries are not intended to be exact. The views expressed in this publication are not those of AIATSIS. For more detailed information about the groups of people in a particular region, contact the relevant land councils. This map is not suitable for use in Native Title and other land claims.
