Abstract

Modem Western society has grown apart from a close relationship with nature and place. There exists a need to re-establish a connection with nature and place in an effort to enrich the health and well-being of individuals, community, and society. A different perspective on this human/nature/place relationship is held by other cultures within Australia. This study explores one of these Indigenous perspectives and investigates how Western society can learn to better relate to nature and place from this alternate perspective through wilderness experiential learning.
