"In this International year of Indigenous languages,
and the 50th anniversary of the Antarctic Treaty
languages of art and science come together with a message:
The spirit of inclusion and cooperation that sustained Aboriginal Australia
for tens of thousands of years
is the same spirit that drives the Antarctic Treaty,
and all treaties (agreements) people make to live well together."
Lisa Roberts with Maddison Gibbs
A trio of animations reflects the spirit that sustained Aboriginal Australia
for tens of thousands of years, and that's at the heart of the Antarctic Treaty System.
