Indigenous Connections

Recognise, respect and celebrate Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through Australia’s audiovisual heritage.

For over 100 years, the stories of Australia’s First Peoples – about family, ancestors, traditions and ways of living – have been captured in sound recordings, moving images and other audiovisual media.

The NFSA holds and preserves more than 25,000 works that document the unique place that First Peoples occupy within Australian society, and the diversity of their cultural and creative expressions.
