Aboriginal People

The ‘Standing Strong Together’ model emphasises the dependency of Social and Emotional Wellbeing on interactions with family, involvement in community activities and connection to Country and culture:

 

Keep active mentally, socially, spiritually, culturally and physically:

  • Express culture in art, music, dance and stories.

Build and maintain a strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander identity by:

  • Keeping connected to family and language groups
  • Supporting family and community
  • Getting together with others at cultural events and visits to Country
  • Taking part in cultural ceremonies.

Make a commitment to:

  • Care for Country
  • Teach young ones about culture and language
  • Re-learn culture and language yourself.
