Aboriginal self-determination and autonomy – Core 2

An Aboriginal Studies unit, where students explore Aboriginal Peoples and human rights, with an emphasis on the importance of self-determination and autonomy.

Students examine how Aboriginal Peoples’ human rights and the fundamental entitlement to self-determination have been denied. Core 2 also develops knowledge and understanding of the relationship between land rights and Aboriginal communities’ autonomy. A case study on the activities of organisations, movements and individuals who have worked towards Aboriginal Peoples’ autonomy, and the broader community response can form the basis through which Core 2 is studied, or it can be undertaken separately at any point throughout the core.
