Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures

A_TSICP1 First Nations communities of Australia maintain a deep  connection to, and responsibility for, Country/Place and have holistic  values and belief systems that are connected to the land, sea, sky and  waterways. 

A_TSIC2 First Nations Australians’ ways of life reflect unique ways of  being, knowing, thinking and doing. 

A_TSIC3 The First Peoples of Australia (Aboriginal Peoples) belong  to the world’s oldest continuous cultures. First Nations Australians  demonstrate resilience in the maintenance, practice and revitalisation of  culture despite the many historic and enduring impacts of colonisation,  and continue to celebrate and share the past, present and future  manifestations of their cultures.

A_TSIP1 Australia has 2 distinct First Nations Peoples; each encompasses  a diversity of nations across Australia. Aboriginal Peoples are the first  peoples of Australia and have occupied the Australian continent for more  than 60,000 years. Torres Strait Islander Peoples are the First Nations  Peoples of the Torres Strait and have occupied the region for over 4,000  years.


SD1 Sustainably designed products, environments and services aim  to minimise the impact on or restore the quality and diversity of  environmental, social and economic systems. 

SD3 Sustainable design requires an awareness of place, past practices,  research and technological developments, and balanced judgements  based on projected environmental, social and economic impacts.
