The cultural belief that life is a continuum, Life-Death-Life, is common amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Central to this belief is that all living things, people, animals, and plants have a spirit; and their spirits connects the living to the past, present and future. At the time of death, the spirit leaves the body to return to their Ancestors’ Country. After death, the family ensures the safe passage of the spirit to their Ancestors and return the body to Country.
