Internet resources

Indigenous online

The Internet provides access to a large range of resources on Indigenous matters. However, the quality of the resources varies, and as part of your research process, you will need to evaluate each web site. There are guidelines for evaluating information which can help you with the evaluation process. Here is a small sample of Internet guides and resources.

AIATSIS: Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies - The Institute undertakes and encourages scholarly, ethical community-based research, holds a priceless collection of films, photographs, video and audio recordings and the world’s largest collections of printed and other resource materials for Indigenous Studies, and has its own publishing house.

 Collaborating for Indigenous Rights - The fifteen years from the late 1950s to the early 1970s was a time of unusual collaboration between black and white activists in Australia. Alliances were formed between Aboriginal Australians motivated to help their people and white Australians wanting to redress the injustices suffered by dispossessed peoples in the building of the Australian state. This site tells their stories. Warning: Indigenous Australians are advised that this website includes images or names of people now deceased.
