Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples were the first to occupy Australia. Aboriginal peoples have a 60,000+ years history of connection to this country which is a living and continuing connection. It was estimated that the population living on mainland Australia was over 1 million at the time of contact with the British. It is also believed that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples enjoyed good health. Sometimes referred to as First Nations people, they have been adversely impacted by the effects of colonisation. This has been the result of introduction of disease, frontier wars, taking of lands, government policies of protection, assimilation, stolen generations etc.
