Decolonisation: An Australian Context
"The heritage of an indigenous people is not merely a collection of objects, stories and ceremonies, but a complete knowledge system with its own concepts of epistemology, philosophy, and scientific and logical validity." (Battiste, M. 2000 p.19) This subject has been designed to explore the process and framework by which indigenous peoples currently find ourselves addressing issues, within a framework that embodies the concept of decolonisation. This subject will analyze the process and impact of colonization and imperialism on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, specifically, Euro-centrism and the resulting representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. It will explore the confluence of differing world views; indigenous and non-indigenous.
