Unit Description

This unit provides an overview of key philosophical, ethical and practical issues that are confronted in the Indigenous community. It will look at the status and other demographic markers among Indigenous and non-Indigenous populations and draw on a range of disciplines such as politics, sociology and cultural studies and ties with the land, to develop their own case study for working with Indigenous people. This course provides a theoretical framework in which to investigate policies, programs and projects designed to address issues of disadvantage and social justice for Indigenous People. It will look at treaty constitutional recognition. We put forward a case to prioritise and encourage openness to further inquiry and productive ways of thinking in and through complex and contested viewpoints, Students are encouraged to undertake a critical comparative analysis of reconciliation. Students will have opportunities to explore their particular disciplinary intersections and interests in Indigenous studies including how a Christian worldview can aid reconciliation
