Abstract

This project researched and developed a Nyungar interpretive history encompassing both traditional and contemporary events with a particular focus on land currently occupied by Murdoch University and its surrounds in Perth, Western Australia. Nyungar worldviews, theories or ideologies have existed for over 40,000 years, however, our existence has largely been ignored by many social scientists focussing on Aboriginal experiences. A number of commentators (such as Sabbioni 1993; Choo 1990; Langton 1981; Muecke 1988; Keen 1988; Narogin 1990) have recently critiqued the minimal recognition of Nyungar, Murri and Koori ideology and theories within the social sciences. As a group of Nyungar proposing this study of Nyungar and other experiences it was important to us to recognise the existence of Nyungar theories, attitudes, values, beliefs and ways of how to use these notions as starting points for research projects.
