Summary "'Culture is Inclusion' is a remarkable and compelling story of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability presented in a unique way that combines traditional research methods and the concept of 'yarning'. Written from the personal accounts of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability, researcher Scott Avery has complied a narrative that transports the reader to another world, hidden to most Australians. It is a world in which people are exposed to social inequality and injustices that most other Australians take for granted. Despite overwhelming disadvantage, these proud and resilient people continue to defy their experience by embracing their traditional culture of an inclusive society. Rich in data and personal testimony, this thoroughly researched publication provides an important window into the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability and is a must-read for those involved in the sector, or those who care about social justice and hope to make a difference. The work leaves you wondering, 'How can this be happening in our country?' and hopes to spark others to continue the research journey."
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander readers are advised that this narrative includes the voices of people who have passed away. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are further cautioned that this research contains personal testimony and content that some people may find distressing.
