About this Unit
The aim of this unit is to introduce students to the various knowledges that Indigenous Australians have developed over the last sixty thousand years. Indigenous Australians have their own concepts of knowledge, intellectuality and communication that are expounded through a myriad forms of storytelling. The practices of storytelling in Indigenous Australia link all things into an interactive matrix of living, land and law. By completing this unit, students will appreciate the comprehensive and flexible forms that knowledge and storytelling manifest themselves in Indigenous Australia.
