Description

The research is addressing the continuing need to find new ways to protect Indigenous spoken cultural knowledge. With Indigenous people globally being the most researched it is essential to impart upon researchers more culturally meaningful longer term beneficence. It is imperative that researchers work within Indigenous methodology and culturally safe protocols. Within a holistic framework the research focuses on best practice for Indigenous Peoples globally, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people nationally and the Wiradjuri people (NSW), my people, at the heart. A strong research foundation forms from this personal contentedness. The research journey is not merely for a few years but is a lifelong kinship. In being so the research fully explores my standpoint as an Indigenist researcher and affirms support from other experienced Indigenous researchers who have worked extensively within this paradigm or framework.
