Summary Note The editors note that this is not a textbook, but rather, "presents fresh perspectives and insights for teachers and students to investigate ... filling a gap in resources specific to the Stage 6 Aboriginal Studies Syllabus ... The chapters in this book explore such complex and controversial areas of Indigenous studies as history, identity, heritage, land, law, health, housing, employment, education, culture, language, poetry and film." - p. xii.
The chapter on education (p. 171-188), written by John Lester, "covers major developments in Aboriginal education from the 1967 Referendum in Australia and looks at the formation of policy and practice up to current policy at both a state [New South Wales] and national level." - p. 171.
Chapter themes: Colonialism, racism and prejudice; Aboriginality and the land; Heritage and identify; Social justice and human rights.
Target Audience "This text offers a standalone resource that will prove valuable for HSC, TAFE and undergraduate university students.
