Indigenous Australia is the gateway course to the Indigenous Studies Major. In this course students will gain an understanding of the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, peoples and societies. A central focus of the course is the ways in which the philosophical frameworks of Indigenous knowledge systems continue to inform contemporary Indigenous practice that continues to shape Indigenous identities today. Taught from a range of perspectives, students will develop an understanding of social, cultural, political, economic, and ecological aspects of Indigenous Knowledge, which are key foundational elements to the Indigenous Studies Major.
