The First Knowledges series offers an introduction to Indigenous knowledges in vital areas and their application to the present day and the future. Exploring practices such as architecture and design, land management, medicine, astronomy and innovation, this six-book series brings together two very different ways of understanding the natural world: one ancient, the other modern.

Each book is a collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous writers and editors. The series is edited by Margo Neale, senior Indigenous curator at the National Museum of Australia.

Aboriginal design is of a distinctly cultural nature, based in the Dreaming and in ancient practices grounded in Country.

This book issues a challenge for a new Australian design ethos, one that truly responds to the essence of Country and its people.
