Description

The Larrakia calendar was produced by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) as part of the Capturing Indigenous knowledge in northern Australia project.

The Capturing Indigenous knowledge in northern Australia project was developed to capture Indigenous ecological knowledge to further understanding about the ecology of northern Australia, and the calendars demonstrate the wealth of knowledge that Indigenous people hold for their environment.
