SRL733 considers contemporary engagements and relationships with Australian and international Indigenous communities in design and planning practice and projects. Part of the unit examines Indigenous peoples and their cultural and spiritual relationships to land, territory, Country, language, name, knowledge transferal, sedentary patterns, custodianship, curatorship, alternate approaches to ‘natural science’, personal and environmental health and their symbiotic use and curatorship of natural resources as legitimate land design, planning and management tools and approaches. A second part examines a set of Australian and international exemplar case studies where Indigenous peoples have served either as client or consultant in the formulation of design and planning projects that have resulted in international and or highly significant, innovative and creative outcomes that demonstrate respect and cultural richness. A third part considers processes of managing cultural-rich projects including consultation, engagement and protocols. A fourth part draws upon on-site engagement with a place rich in Indigenous meanings, associations, history, myth, and provide a first-hand understanding of Indigenous protocols.
