Aboriginal people have been caring for country for thousands of years. Now, one NSW land council is forming an unlikely alliance with developers to save endangered species.



This week Living Black investigates BioBanking, a scheme allowing developers to make up for some of the environmental destruction their practises cause, by investing in conservation on Aboriginal land.



We'll also investigate how low-income Indigenous families are falling prey to retail rental schemes in an attempt to provide the essentials for the family home.



And we showcase the new style of citizen journalism hitting the Northern Territory: Mojos, or mobile journalists, telling Indigenous stories through Indigenous eyes.

Also this week: it's been a long journey of healing for former residents of the Cootamundra Girls Home. Many of these Stolen Generations members will return to the institution they were raised in for the first time in decades, when it marks its 100th anniversary.



And don't miss Women of Soul performing in the final instalment of The Music Project.
