Cultural Advice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this website contains names, images, and voices of deceased persons.

In addition, some articles contain terms or views that were acceptable within mainstream Australian culture in the period in which they were written, but may no longer be considered appropriate.

These articles do not necessarily reflect the views of The Australian National University.

Older articles are being reviewed with a view to bringing them into line with contemporary values but the original text will remain available for historical context.

Indigenous Australia is hosted by the National Centre of Biography at the Australian National University.

As well as containing entries in its own right, Indigenous Australia brings together all entries on Indigenous Australians found in the NCB's biographical websites–Australian Dictionary of Biography, Obituaries Australia, Labour Australia and Women Australia.

The site also supports special projects such as the Australian Indigenous Autobiography Archive.
