    Marcia Langton: Welcome to Country schools edition is an extended, education-focused edition of the bestselling Marcia Langton: Welcome to Country, which received the 2019 Indie Book Award for Best Illustrated Non-fiction. It is essential reading for any Australian high school student who wants to learn more about the culture that has thrived here for over 50,000 years. In this schools edition, author Professor Marcia Langton expands on the educational information from the first edition.

    Part One of the original book has been reworked, including topics/chapters on Indigenous prehistory, cultures and languages, kinship, art and performance, storytelling, native title, the Stolen Generations and NAIDOC week.

    The book also includes new sections:

    • Knowledge, covering everything from bush medicine to astrology.
    • Environment, such as fire management.
    • Looking to the future for Indigenous Australia, with topics such as the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
    • Cultural awareness refocused from the original book's travel angle.
    • References including a list of websites and further references as recommended by Professor Marcia Langton.
    Detailed teachers' notes that explain how to apply the book to a range of subjects for Years 7 through 10 can be downloaded online.
