Aboriginal identities – Core 1
A unit where students explore the diversity of Aboriginal cultures and identities, and the factors that contribute to their maintenance and expression.
Students explore the social factors and experiences that affect identity and cultural expression. Core 1 also develops knowledge and understanding about appropriate consultation protocols and Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP), so that students are able to work ethically with their local Aboriginal communities. A case study on Aboriginal community identities can be the basis through which Core 1 is studied, or it can be undertaken separately at any point throughout the core.
