Maps By Night: Indigenous Navigation

For thousands of years, humans have been making maps of the world they inhabit. In Australian Aboriginal cultures, mental maps are built on songs and ceremony, reflecting both the land and the sky, and drawing on a deep understanding of the cosmos. These songlines and other navigational tools enabled Aboriginal Australians to navigate across the country, trading artefacts and sacred stories. Join Ray Norris as he discusses how Indigenous people used stories and other navigational tools to cross country.
