What do you need to know to prosper as a people for at least 65,000 years?

The First Knowledges series offers an introduction to Indigenous knowledges in vital areas and their application to the present day and the future. Exploring practices such as architecture and design, land management, botany, astronomy and law, this book series brings together two very different ways of understanding the natural world: one ancient, the other modern.

Here are the first six books in a box set which includes: Songlines, Design, Country, Astronomy, Plants and Law.

'This beautiful, important series is a gift and a tool. Use it well. '  Tara June Winch

‘Australians are yearning for a different approach to land management. Let this series begin the discussion. Let us allow the discussion to develop and deepen.’  Bruce Pascoe, author of Dark Emu, Young Dark Emu and co-author of Country

‘These books and this series are part of the process of informing that conversation through the rediscovery and telling of historic truths with contemporary application… In many ways each individual book will be an act of intellectual reconciliation.’  Lynette Russell, co-author of Innovation
