South Australia’s landscape boards, peak bodies, local and state government agencies, and other landscape management stakeholders have worked together to develop the strategy.
The document outlines seven priorities for the landscape boards and their communities to consider in their land management practices.
The co-chair of First Nations of South Australia Aboriginal Corporation, Travis Thomas, says the strategy recognises Aboriginal people’s connection to Country.
First Nations of SA Aboriginal Corporation is the peak body for Aboriginal groups across South Australia, acting as a united voice on cultural heritage.
“We’ve been providing input into the inclusion of First Nations throughout all landscape policy, and there is a good section in there which emphasises having First Nations involved,” said Nukunu man Travis Thomas.
Aboriginal Way asked Mr Thomas to explain how each priority could be implemented using First Nations knowledge.
