Law is culture, and culture is law. Indigenous law is a complex area that involves issues concerning First Nations peoples and their relationships with governments, rights to land, rights to tradition, and rights to self-government. Aaron and Marcia are the authors of the First Knowledges series, which provides an introduction to Indigenous knowledge in songlines, architecture, design, land management, botany, astronomy, and law. This series brings together two distinctly different ways of comprehending the natural world: one ancient, the other modern.

Hukum adalah budaya dan budaya adalah hukum. Hukum masyarakat adat adalah sebuah wilayah kerja yang rumit, menyangkut orang-orang First Nations dan hubungan mereka dengan pemerintah, hak terhadap tanah, hak terhadap tradisi, dan hak memerintah diri sendiri. Aaron dan Marcia adalah para penulis serial First Knowledges, yang memberikan pengantar kepada pengetahuan masyarakat adat melalui songlines, arsitektur, desain, pengelolaan lahan, botani, astronomi, dan hukum. Serial ini membawakan dua pendekatan yang sama sekali berbeda untuk memahami alam: yang satu kuna, yang lain lagi modern.
