Deepening Histories of Place: Exploring Indigenous Landscapes of National and International Significance


Deepening Histories of Place was a multi-partner project which gathered together publications, archive resources and cultural histories to deepen understandings of three different Australian landscapes - the Blue Mountains, Central Australia and the Top End of the Northern Territory.

Because the project involved researching histories of people and land with Indigenous custodians and community members, the project partners wanted to ensure that the collection and use of Indigenous knowledge in the project was handled ethically and according to best practice. To achieve this, Terri Janke and Company developed the Ethical Protocols and five Clearance Forms for the project to help acknowledge and respect Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) rights.
