True Tracks: Respecting Indigenous knowledge and culture by Terri Janke

$45.00 inc. GST

True Tracks is a ground-breaking work that paves the way for the respectful and ethical engagement with Indigenous knowledges and cultures. Combining real-world cases and personal stories, award-winning Meriam/Wuthathi lawyer Dr Terri Janke draws on twenty years of professional experience to inform and inspire leaders across many industries – from art and architecture, to film and publishing, dance, science and tourism.

How will your project affect and involve Indigenous communities? What Indigenous materials and knowledge are you using? Who owns Indigenous languages?

True Tracks helps answer these questions and many more, and provides invaluable guidelines that enable Indigenous peoples to actively practise, manage and strengthen their cultural life and empower future generations.

If we keep our tracks true, Indigenous culture and knowledge can benefit everyone.
