Helping to close the gap by providing the evidence base to inform practice and policy in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. The Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of Australia and the Torres Strait. We respect all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people—their customs and their beliefs. We also pay our respects to Elders past and present, with particular acknowledgement to the Whadjuk people of the Nyoongar nation, the traditional owners of the lands where our offices are located.

Summary: "This program is a comprehensive, sensitive and accessible examination of modern indigenous culture and identity.

This program meets a variety of indigenous Australians and witnesses their expressions in art and achievements in sport which still maintain all the integrity, authenticity and connectedness to a culture which continues to survive a barrage of external cultural influences."--container.
