Library & Archives NT offices are located on the ancestral lands of the Larrakia people in Darwin and the Arrernte people in Alice Springs. We acknowledge and pay our respects to Larrakia and Arrernte elders past, present and emerging, and recognise their ongoing connection to the lands, seas, country and culture. We extend these respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the Northern Territory and beyond, many of whom are represented in our collections.
