Australia, known as the Land down under, is a diverse country that is rich in culture. It is a home of different races from the First people to non-Indigenous Australians and immigrants. According to Colebatch 2012, it was a melting pot of races during the census in 2011. As it is my first time experiencing diversity in this country I have experienced being shocked by the culture. People are from different parts of the world that offers their own unique way of life through culture. Yet, it is vital to understand and comprehend the life of the First Australians to live harmoniously in this society. Going deeper in the history of Australia Chenoweth and McAuliffe 2020, wrote that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are known to be the First Peoples of Australia that were colonized by the British.

They have introduced western practices which has led to the misplaced connection to our ancestral roots. In the Australian context, I would say that I am awed on how they addressed their ownership of the land. This is because it is more than just a land but a deeper connection of who they are. In my province of Benguet I am proud to say that we are the original settlers of the place thus ownership of land was through kinship. According to the lived experience of elders, us Ibalois, are known to live in a peaceful environment so tends to live in the far-flung mountains of Benguet thus selling our lands to the new settlers of our so called home. However, ethnocentrism played a big role on my early years of staying. My first perception of the first nations was a liability to the Federal government without understanding where they are coming from. I
