Ngadjonji History of the Rainforest People
The original inhabitants of the rainforest country around Malanda in Far North Queensland
The Ngadjonji were among the first to embrace the new technology of the internet. Their web site is, in our opinion, the best indigenous web site in Australia. Reconciliation works best through understanding. Education works best through access.
The Ngadjonji Elders deserve the highest praise in this regard.

The aim is to create education material that is relevant to the issues and aspirations of our communities and create more opportunities towards the future survival of our children’s culture, community, and environment.
Indigenous Biocultural Knowledge
This website aims to draw attention to the wealth of projects, research and management plans where Indigenous Biocultural Knowledge has been used and Aboriginal people have added great value to our understanding of Australian ecology and land management practices.
Many Aboriginal people and their non-Indigenous colleagues have and are working on a range of projects to manage and understand Country using Indigenous Biocultural knowledge and western science. This website offers an indicative map of where these projects have been documented and provides examples of current leading practice, review material, related resources and case studies of “living” knowledge and projects that have not been documented.
