Cultural Ways

Welcome to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Ways portal. In this section you will find information on how to appropriately engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities to demonstrate an awareness of their identity, history and culture. In addition to providing information on the holistic nature of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander concept of health, this section also covers a number of key concepts like traditional healing and medicine, cultural practices like caring for country, death and grief (Sorry Business), law and lore, Men’s Business and Women’s Business. The section on identity explores how it is connected to land and country, various specific language and cultural groups, and Indigenous identification. Working with community focuses on how non-Indigenous people can respectfully work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities, and looks at various cross-cultural issues, cultural learning and respect, ethics, and best-practice. Finally, this portal covers data sovereignty which refers to inalienable right of  Indigenous people worldwide to their data ownership.
