In this subject, students critically engage with the historical foundations of current practices and processes of environmental management to develop awareness of how these impact contemporary realities for Indigenous Australian peoples. By critically reflecting on their standpoint, students examine the influence these foundations have on relationships between people and Country. Students develop an understanding of intercultural awareness and cultural responsivity by examining their own values, beliefs, and current knowledges to support a critique of past and present environmental management practices. The pivotal role Country plays in the maintenance of Indigenous Australian health and wellbeing is explored. Students develop a working knowledge of Indigenous Australian environmental practices with an understanding of their own role as social actors and identify strategies for working with diverse populations into the future. This subject is taught collaboratively by the School of Indigenous Australian Studies and the School of Environmental Sciences.
