This unit of study focuses on the historical, social and political contexts of the survival and growth of Indigenous Australian cultures and philosophies. Indigenous cultures have existed in this country for at least sixty thousand years, yet have been interpreted and represented to the world from predominantly non-Indigenous points of view. This unit of study responds to the lack of inclusion of Indigenous histories and knowledges in mainstream pedagogic practice since invasion. It provides an introduction to Indigenous philosophies and theories by critically examining contact history and resistance within a decolonising framework.Available only to students enrolled in the Diploma of Education (Aboriginal)
