This map is produced by AIATSIS (Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies) to help better understand the geographical parameters of traditional country and represent the language, social or nation groups of Aboriginal Australia.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia is made up of many different and distinct groups, each with their own culture, customs, language and laws.
This map represents the general locations of these groups and their languages and more; but not exact or fixed boundaries. It serves as a reminder of the richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia.
It used published resources from the eighteenth century-1994 and is not intended to be exact, nor the boundaries fixed.
It is not suitable for native title or other land claims.
