People Country Culture Calendar

WET TROPICSA CULTURAL LANDSCAPE

The 2017 'People, Country, Culture' calendar aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the important and ongoing role of Rainforest Aboriginal people in the management and protection of the Wet Tropics cultural landscape, which is an internationally recognised World Heritage Area.

The calendar features insights into some of the custodial responsibilities Rainforest Aboriginal people have for country and culture as the Traditional Owners of the area. It also presents some of the contemporary ways in which traditional knowledge and cultural practice are being actively applied to, and are often advancing, the management of natural and cultural assets within the Wet Tropics.

The 2017 calendar is a collaborative initiative of Rainforest Aboriginal people and their organisations, the Wet Tropics Management Authority and Terrain Natural Resource Management. We acknowledge the contributions made by Djiru, Girramay, Nywaigi, Jirrbal, Tablelands Yidinji, Gunggandji, Yirrganydji, Mandingalbay Yidinji, Eastern Kuku Yalanji, Western Yalanji, Gimuy Wallubara Yidinji peoples and their organisations.

We acknowledge Rainforest Aboriginal people as the traditional custodians of the Wet Tropics and recognise their connection to this cultural landscape. We pay our respect to elders past, present and future.
