This database focuses on Australian flora giving information and insight into a number of non-indigenous plants commonly known as weeds. It also function as an exchange node for facts and stories >>>please feel free to comment and add on the database<<<
The aim of this project is to rediscover the traditional knowledge, celebrate the multiplicity of cultures in botanical terms, and learn the legal status of such plants.


The framing of “illegal” and unwanted flora within a cultural context will draw attention to the concept of “permissible species” as a social construct. Weeds are defined by a nation's law, and what is declared weed in one place may be a precious resource in another. There is a significant metaphorical connection between this definition of “weed” and the arbitrary restriction imposed on human migration by national governments.

- Aboriginal people continuous right to make decision regarding their land and culture<br>
- The ongoing discrimination, marginalisation and genocidal practice which indigenous people are subject to in this country.

RESPECT
The elders, the ancestors, and the future generation of Australian Aborigines people, the owner of this land where we stands on.

EXPRESS
- Our shame regarding the dialogue about indigenous people of Australia and their rights, particularly what comes from the government of this country.
- Our disgust, horror and sadness regarding the history of this country and the treatment of Indigenous people in Australia since invasion.
- Our hope for a society where Indigenous people and culture are heard, seen and respected, and our commitment to work towards such a society.
