Marcia Langton's Welcome to Country is a completely new and inclusive guidebook to Indigenous Australia and the Torres Strait Islands. Author Professor Marcia Langton answers questions such as why the Welcome to Country is so important and what does 'country' mean to Indigenous people. A detailed introduction covers such topics as Indigenous languages and customs, history, religion and ceremonies, art and dance, and cultural awareness and etiquette for visitors. This is followed by a directory of Indigenous tourism experiences, organised into state sections, covering galleries and festivals, communities that are open to visitors, tours and performances. This book is for everyone travelling around Australia who wants to gain an insight into the culture that has thrived here for over 50,000 years and explore a different side of Australia - one that remains dynamic, and is filled with openness and diversity.
