Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Indigenous peoples of Australia. They are not one group, but rather comprise hundreds of groups that each have their own distinct set of languages, histories and cultural traditions. From Gadigal people in inner-city Sydney, to Anindilyakwa people on Groote Eylandt, Indigenous people all around Australia are connected by rich stories, culture and connection to Country. Despite resilience and strong communities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experience widespread socioeconomic disadvantage, generational trauma, discrimination and health inequality.
It's important to view contemporary disadvantage among Indigenous Australians in the context of colonisation and its ongoing impact. There are many organisations and leaders working to address the harm caused by colonisation, and close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
