For a sustainable future
Aboriginal people are the oldest living civilisation in the world, who have thrived as a community since time began. We are the traditional owners of the land and the ongoing custodians.
This meant that we protected our land, we would take only take what was needed without compromising the resources for future generations.
This inspired us to aim to be 100% sustainable.
At Palawa Kipli we hope that Tasmanian Aboriginal food is more acknowledged, that it is the original food resources of the land Lutruwita/Tasmania.
We hope that by sharing our food with you, people are more aware of how sustainable the future can be. By learning about our history and culture, it will enable you to be apart of the movement to creating a better environment for the future and will continue to strengthen the existence of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community.
