When we work in Land Care we are working with Indigenous Land.

Indigenous stories and knowledge of the land, water, animals, plants and ecosystems, and the teachings around the roles of the humans living in relationship with them, have been carried through the massive disruption of colonization and active efforts to suppress and destroy them.

There is a resurgence of these stories, teachings and practices among many Indigenous communities on Turtle Island.

Some of the knowledge, wisdom and stories that have been saved have been generously shared by those who have cared for them.

Some of these, and other resources, can be found through the links below.
