Australian Aboriginal Peoples Cultures and Identities
10 cp Prerequisites: Nil Teaching Organisation
This unit examines and critically reflects on the concepts of Aboriginal ‘identity’, ‘heritage’ and ‘culture’ within diverse Australian contexts. It critically examines policies associated with Aboriginal identity; government and community, as well as Aboriginal people’s responses to these over time. The unit is embedded within Australian Aboriginal ontological frameworks enabling participants to become more aware of local Aboriginal Knowings and knowledge sources. A range of expressions of Aboriginal cultures and identities through visual and performing arts will be explored.
