Too many visitors to Australia return home without ever experiencing any true contact or knowledge of Australia's indigenous people. This guide helps visitors explore and respect one of the oldest cultures in the world including information on bush tucker, the Dreaming and cultural sites.

To the colonized, the term 'research' is conflated with European colonialism; the ways in which academic research has been implicated in the throes of imperialism remains a painful memory. This essential volume explores intersections of imperialism and research - specifically, the ways in which imperialism is embedded in disciplines of knowledge and tradition as 'regimes of truth.' Concepts such as 'discovery' and 'claiming' are discussed and an argument presented that the decolonization of research methods will help to reclaim control over indigenous ways of knowing and being.
