"I think it’s important that we continue to invite Aboriginal professionals, artists and curators to come through and interpret the collections and the cultural material, and work right across the Museum, and be collaborative with the other areas in science and natural history.

To think about how science and Indigenous knowledge systems are really important to the way that we operate at the Museum and the collections that we hold. To think about how in the longer term that Aboriginal people have access, more access, to their cultural objects." - Sharni Jones.
