dc.description.abstractThis thesis investigates how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and cultural traditions are remembered and practiced within the framework of a colonial society. I develop an Indigenous methodology utilising a participatory mode of enquiry through yarning, sharing and deep listening, drawing on my own experience and standpoint to relate to and elicit knowledge from collaborators. The research brings together investigations centring on practices utilised in remembering heritage and culture. I draw on original research including reflections on my experiences, living and working as an Indigenous musician, Arts Strategy writer and festival organiser in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. My research takes into account interviews and research with elders and cultural practitioners in Canada and New Zealand as well as secondary sources in order to understand the methodology of colonisation and the ensuing disruptions to the cultural practices and knowledges of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders within the colonisation continuum of Australia.
