About this Unit
This unit introduces the perspectives of Aboriginal people and communities and explores both diverse and unifying aspects of Aboriginal cultures. The unit is informed by a theoretical model of developing cultural competence - cultural knowledge, cultural awareness, cultural skills, cultural encounter and cultural desire (Campinha-Bacote, 2011). To maximize their learning, students will experience an ‘on-country’ field trip facilitated by Aboriginal Elders. The unit will interest anyone wishing to develop personal and organisational cultural competence related to Aboriginal Australia, extend their understanding of past and contemporary issues relating to Aboriginal people and communities and promote understanding of the intergenerational impacts of the past experiences of Aboriginal people and their communities.
