Literate practices in Indigenous communities.
Project summary: Research into the links between literacy, social capital and community capacity in relation to culturally appropriate ways of improving health and wellbeing. The two projects funded by NCVER were designed to complement each other in that each examined one whole Indigenous community’s literacy practices in order to establish implications for more effective education and training to enhance health and wellbeing outcomes. One community was located in the Centre (Utopia) and two in the Top End (Wudicupildyer and East Arnhem Land).
