The unit of study traces Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander relationships to country and place, and the continuities and dynamism of contemporary Indigenous Australian cultures. It will celebrate the fact that, despite the impact of colonisation, Indigenous Australian peoples have maintained unique identities and connections to land and sea. Through the themes of Indigenous Sydney, Connections to Place, and Cultural Continuity, this unit of study examines Indigenous activism, material culture and cultural heritage, Indigenous people and tourism, art, festivals and performance and film. Excursions to relevant exhibitions around Sydney will also be undertaken.
Available to students who have completed the Diploma in Education (Aboriginal) or equivalent.
