Aboriginal elders in Western Australia are taking steps to document their communities’ heritage and culture on film. The Indigenous Community Stories initiative, set up by the Film and Television Institute, is making its way around the state recording oral histories for future generations. The footage will be stored in the F-T-I’s archives in Fremantle, and at the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies in Canberra. So far, the team has filmed 27 stories, and their hope is to eventually record 100.
