The National Museum of Australia's newly reopened Torres Strait Islander gallery features objects and stories that reveal the history and vitality of Australia's most northerly region. The words lag, meta and aus translate as home in the region's three Indigenous languages. Even though 80 per cent of Islanders now live on mainland Australia, they still think of the Torres Strait as home.
