In order to work effectively with Aboriginal people is is helpful to understand:

  • what is meant by The Dreaming
  • the importance of the Land and the basis for it
  • the legal history - two laws, one land
  • family and kinship structures and expectations
  • how we have made our images of the history and identity of indigenous people
  • what self-determination means.

This section of the site:

  • provides an overview of each of these key concepts
