This subject explores the generation of knowledge from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The subject aims to establish a critical learning framework for appreciating different ways of knowing, being and doing as explored through a backdrop of colonial and current experiences in Australia and internationally. Students are supported to explore both Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews in regard to health and wellbeing and to reflect on how these differing world views impact understanding of health status. This subject examines the impact that common non-Indigenous research practices had, and continue to have, on Indigenous communities and introduces students to Indigenous research methodologies.
