Indigenous Australians Today - ANTH3618

Year - 2020

The unit uses an anthropological lens to examine how Indigenous Australians have long engaged with a diversity of non-Indigenous practices, ideas and values as they continue to articulate distinct Indigenous lives. It investigates ethnographically changing Indigenous lifeworlds since colonisation with a focus on state policy and rights politics.
