Australian War Memorial honours Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ex-serving members in new exhibit – For Country, for Nation

The Australian War Memorial has opened a new exhibition, For Country, for Nation, commemorating and exploring the military experience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Indigenous Australians have served with honour among our military forces. The exhibition comprises a diverse range of art, objects, photographs and stories from across Australia that demonstrate their service.

For Country, for Nation is thematic in structure. Stories of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experience during wartime and peace are told under the following themes:

- we remember

- warrior strength, diplomats patience

- all heroes, our stories

- communities on the front line

- full rights as citizens

- our cultures continue.

The exhibition will be on display for the next year. For more information visit the Australian War Memorial website
