Edith Cowan University (ECU) has a strong focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research, particularly initiatives led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers. This collection features a selection of publications from Research Online, ECU’s institutional repository about education, language and culture, health and wellbeing, and land and ecology in the context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia.

ECU is committed to reconciliation and recognises and respects the significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ communities, cultures and histories. ECU acknowledges and respects the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, as the traditional custodians of the land.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this collection may include images, sounds, and names of deceased persons.
