Summary
The responsibility to culturally reconnect relevant contemporary Indigenous communities to their material heritage held in the Museum has been realised and is documented in this catalogue, which includes a catalogue of objects, and essays by Indigenous and non-Indigenous authors. During the process of community visits and consultations, images of the objects brought old and young people together, instigating intergenerational dialogue about the past. Now, in collaboration with communities, the Indigenous collection can be seen in this catalogue and is represented at the heart of the Vatican Museums where the objects have become cultural ambassadors inviting others to come and learn more about Australian Indigenous cultures
