Homepage and main map - Indigenous Weather Knowledge

Australia's First Nations, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have developed an intricate understanding of the environment over many thousands of years.

The 'Indigenous climate, weather and culture' link will take you to an overview of the relationships between language, culture and environmental knowledge and provides context for the website.

Go to the 'About the IWK Project' link to learn more about the Indigenous Weather Knowledge project and the Bureau of Meteorology's commitment to strengthening respectful and collaborative relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
