During my research to find real solutions for Aboriginal student success, I have come to understand that there is an overall, encompassing factor, which is fundamental in Aboriginal education, i.e. the importance of relationships. Through a process of qualitative study, I have reviewed literature and studied reports and case studies on successful Aboriginal schools, examined other models of education, and reviewed Aboriginal perspectives in education. Through this process, I explore the concept of relationships in regards to Indigenous education and how those relationships possess key components in finding solutions for Aboriginal student success. The relationships that I examine in this report are: Aboriginal peoples and Canada, the self, school, leadership, teachers, and parents and community. Embedded in each one of these relationships lies solutions for Aboriginal student success. Working on the relationship of Aboriginal Peoples and Canada starts with education. Education is key in promoting understanding and initiating change. Governance and Leadership is the success factor that was found most often by researchers in case studies of successful Aboriginal schools. The positive relationships between the physical, emotional/mental...

BACKGROUND: The purpose of the study is to compare characteristics of Aboriginal patient hospital admissions with non-Aboriginal admissions to the Ophthalmology Unit of the Royal Adelaide Hospital. METHODS: A retrospective review of separation data was undertaken of hospital inpatient and day surgery admissions to the Royal Adelaide Hospital Ophthalmology Unit for the period July 1997 to January 2005. RESULTS: There were 11 944 admissions to the Ophthalmology Unit (including inpatients and day surgery cases), of which 273 (2.29%) were Aboriginal patients. Of the total, 2779 (23.3%) patients were admitted for at least 24 h (inpatients), and 9165 (76.7%) stayed less than 24 h (mostly day surgery cases). Aboriginal patients comprised 6.8% of inpatient admissions, and 0.9% of admissions less than 24 h. The average age of Aboriginal patients (52.9 years) was significantly less than non-Aboriginal patients (62.6 years; P < 0.0001). The median length of stay for Aboriginal patients was 5 days compared with 3 days in non-Aboriginal patients. Aboriginal patients were more likely to be from interstate (RR 10.3 P < 0.0001), more likely to have diabetes mellitus (RR 2.7 P < 0.0001), and more likely to be admitted for cataract surgery (RR 4.18 P < 0.0001) and lid disorders (RR 6.04 P < 0.0001) than non-Aboriginal patients. CONCLUSION: Aboriginal patients admitted to the Ophthalmology Unit were younger in age...

This thesis presents the first empirical study into the accommodation needs of Australian Aboriginal prisoners in prison custody. The over-representation of Aboriginal people in the Australian prison system is increasing and the continuing deaths of Aboriginal peoples in prison custody by suicide are an important national issue. Previous prison studies have not addressed all of the issues surrounding this problem. Although the varying and differing accommodation needs of Aboriginal prisoners have been recognised since the 1800s, there is a limited understanding of the relationship between the prison environment and the rates of suicide among Aboriginal prisoners. The aim of the thesis is to investigate the issues and present findings which may contribute to the creation of prison environments which reduce stress levels, and may in turn decrease rates of suicide among Aboriginal prisoners. The research investigates the prison environment for the Aboriginal prisoner from a people-environments approach, locates the act of suicide among a series of behaviours which may occur in response to an environment incongruent with the needs of users. These responses are influenced by a complex of personal, environmental and institutional factors. Data for the research was gathered by studying five South Australian prisons and conducting a series of interviews with 55 male Aboriginal prisoners incarcerated within them. The prisons were documented using observations...

Introduction: Long-term measures to reduce tobacco consumption in Australia have had differential effects in the population. The prevalence of smoking in Aboriginal peoples is currently more than double that of the non-Aboriginal population. Aboriginal Health Workers are responsible for providing primary health care to Aboriginal clients including smoking cessation programs. However, Aboriginal Health Workers are frequently smokers themselves, and their smoking undermines the smoking cessation services they deliver to Aboriginal clients. An understanding of the barriers to quitting smoking experienced by Aboriginal Health Workers is needed to design culturally relevant smoking cessation programs. Once smoking is reduced in Aboriginal Health Workers, they may then be able to support Aboriginal clients to quit smoking. Methods: We undertook a fundamental qualitative description study underpinned by social ecological theory. The research was participatory, and academic researchers worked in partnership with personnel from the local Aboriginal health council. The barriers Aboriginal Health Workers experience in relation to quitting smoking were explored in 34 semi-structured interviews (with 23 Aboriginal Health Workers and 11 other health staff) and 3 focus groups (n = 17 participants) with key informants. Content analysis was performed on transcribed text and interview notes. Results: Aboriginal Health Workers spoke of burdensome stress and grief which made them unable to prioritise quitting smoking. They lacked knowledge about quitting and access to culturally relevant quitting resources. Interpersonal obstacles included a social pressure to smoke...

This thesis sets out to explore the gulf between prescriptions relating to Indigenous organisations as articulated in the Indigenous governance discourse in Australia, and the actual political practice of Aboriginal people. It is based on fieldwork carried out in two organisations, one in the Kimberley town of Fitzroy Crossing, and one based around five communities some 100kms to the town’s east. The study crosses three disciplines, anthropology, history and politics, in its attempt to describe and analyse the political and personal dynamics at play in the two organisations. By examining two organisations, the thesis is able to show the difference that can exist between different Aboriginal groups and their forms of political expression. To make sense of such diversity, it argues that, in the first instance, due consideration must be given to post-colonial histories. These histories are concerned with the nature of first contact with non-Indigenous ‘settlers’, and the subsequent violence and dispersal that followed. They track the decades of Aboriginal groups working on pastoral stations of the Fitzroy Valley, and the way in which some groups were able to stay on their traditional country during this time, while others were not. The dynamics around the Pastoral Award decision of 1968...

Aboriginal people are over represented in prison in Australia, being 13 times more likely to be incarcerated than non-Indigenous people. Repeat offenders make up a high proportion of the Aboriginal prison population, yet most repeat offenders eventually cease offending or desist from crime. Why do they stop? The process of desistance is complex, non-linear and varies between individuals. North American and British studies report the role of structure and, more latterly, cognition and agency in desistance and re-formation of offender identities. Few of these studies examine the context, particularly the cultural context, of desisters and desistance. This thesis uses anthropological and ethnographic approaches to present and analyse the life narratives of Aboriginal men from north-western New South Wales who have been repeat offenders and are now ‘going good’ (i.e. have ceased offending). Concepts of agency (and its temporal orientations), cultural schemas and figured worlds are applied. The stories of the early lives of participants and the views of community members paint the backdrop of offence, desistance, identity formation and re-formation. The agentic role of the motivating cultural schemas of fatherhood, life partnership...

In October 2005, the Commonwealth government announced changes to the Land Rights Act 1976 (Cth) to allow for long term leasing (for up to 99 years) of whole townships on aboriginal land with the intention that leased towns could then be subleased to individuals and businesses. A key concern of the Commonwealth government was encouraging home ownership in aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory and providing security of tenure for the establishment of business . It should be noted that the current system of land tenure on aboriginal land in the Northern Territory is a communal form of ownership in which aboriginal land is held by a Land Trust for the benefit of all traditional owners of that land and traditional owners must agree to all leases of that land . The proposed amendment to the Land Rights Act would require traditional owner consent for the lease of aboriginal townships but not for individual sub-leases for business or housing . The announcement of changes to the Land Rights Act is only the latest episode in a fierce debate. Key aspects of this debate have included the appropriateness of communal ownership of aboriginal land in the Northern Territory and the potential of privatisation policies (such as the plan to develop individual subleased housing and business plots in towns) to deliver good economic and housing outcomes for aboriginal people in the Northern Territory. This report has sought to analyse and comment upon the current debate on privatisation of aboriginal land in the Northern Territory. It focused primarily on exploring current debates on land rights from a philosophical and historical perspective. In particular...

"In 2005, 267,793 women gave birth to 272,419 babies- a dramatic jump of 5.9% from the number of babies born in 2004. The number of births in Australia is now the highest it has been since 1971. It seems likely that Australia is at the start of a new baby boom" (Department of Health and Ageing 2008, p. 1). With the growing number of infants being born each year, maternity health care has become an increasingly important topic of study and area of improvement. The Australian Government has undertaken initiatives in the past to cultivate a better system addressing the needs of women. Although these previous actions have been fairly successful in improving of maternity health for most Australian women, Aboriginal women still are not receiving adequate care during their pregnancies, childbirths, and after births. Aboriginal women need to be able to feel educated enough about their health care options to make informed decisions. They should "be able to feel they are in control of what is happening during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period, based on their individual needs and having discussed issues fully with their care providers" (Department of Health and Ageing 2008, p. 1). Although there are a variety of maternity care services available to Aboriginal women depending on the region in which they live...

This thesis argues that the honour of the Crown and the reconciliation agenda are engaged in the sentencing of Aboriginal offenders, given grossly disproportionate Aboriginal incarceration rates and their underlying causes, including socio-economic problems, community breakdown and cultural dislocation that arise at least partly from the history of Crown-Aboriginal interaction. Such an interpretation facilitates a new relationship between the Crown and Aboriginal peoples and will contribute to the rehabilitation of the rule of law. I address not only the underlying legal questions pertaining to the engagement of the honour of the Crown and the reconciliation agenda in sentencing Aboriginal offenders, but also interrogatories relating to the role of morality in the law and the rule of law for Aboriginal peoples in the sentencing context. Fundamentally, the honour of the Crown and reconciliation principles are interpreted and applied such that the sentencing of Aboriginal offenders can accommodate and attempt to ameliorate colonialist history. This distinctive history produces a legal requirement of reconciliation and honour-based governance if the rule of law is to be a reality for Aboriginal peoples in Canada. Section 718.2(e) of the Criminal Code and Gladue analysis provide a vehicle for the courts to inject the honour of the Crown into the sentencing of Aboriginal offenders...
