Majority perceptions of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders matter in the Australian democracy. This course explores the ways that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people draw on a range of personal, social and cultural resources to compensate for adversities brought about by colonisation.  

Studying the archival and oral history of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders since European contact, this course explores agency, successes and joys as well as the ways that people live with the challenges and traumas of history.
