Abstract Traditions in the contemporary urban Indigenous communities of Brisbane are examined to establish their precedents, meanings and innovation. The paper is based on current fieldwork in Inala, an outer suburb of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia. Traditions of place ownership, kinship and belonging, social identity and gathering are examined revealing new and diverse ways of expressing cultural values, which had been disrupted by colonization. The research finds that despite innovation in traditions, many core values from the classical pre-invasion period are retained, and ‘invention’ of tradition is in fact a sedimentation onto existing cultural values and systems, rather than culture loss or degradation.
