Synopsis

This is no anthropological gaze at First Nations culture but rather an analysis of systems and structures and the development of these concepts in Western academia and societies and how these developments have impacted on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities. Words and their meanings will be unpacked alongside modernity's rejection of culture, imagined communities and communities of movement will be looked at against the emergence of communities/cultures of resistance. The dynamic relationship of belonging to and from a place will be explored.
