We’re a dreaming country: guidelines for the interpretation of Aboriginal heritage

NATIONAL TRUST OF AUSTRALIA (WA)

Aboriginal Interpretation Guidelines

We’re a dreaming country: guidelines for the interpretation of Aboriginal heritage was launched on 18 April by Prof Carmen Lawrence. The guidelines have been prepared by the National Trust in conjunction with their Aboriginal Advisory Committee. They provide guidance to ensure appropriate respect, acknowledgment and ownership of Aboriginal places and stories. Included are sections on underpinning rights and understandings, protocols and getting started with Aboriginal heritage. We’re a dreaming country was funded through the federally funded National Trust Partnerships Program.

The volume is a companion to the very successful Sharing our stories: guidelines for heritage interpretation (2007) developed in conjunction with Lotterywest and Museums Australia.
