"Country is not just a beautiful place. To us, it is everything. It holds out stories, our religion, our customs, and our ancestors."

The land (aka. country) defines Aboriginal culture. This is because Aboriginal peoples believe their ancestral spirits emerged from the earth and the sky. These spirits are their hero-creators, and it’s through their journeys that they believe all living things are concieved. These forces of creation are always there, which is why there is a strong, resilient cultural connection between Aboriginal people and the land. (Australian Aboriginal Cultures - Tourism Australia, n.d.)

Translation: "The land actually gave birth to our language. Language and culture are inseparable."

There are more then 250 languages indigenous to Austrailia, with more than 800 dialects between them. They originate from the lands, thus Aboriginal culture is inseperale from Aboriginal Language. (Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies, n.d.)
