Indigenous peoples have generally been the objects of the research as has Indigenous art, dance, stories, artefacts, music and history. This is also the experience of Indigenous peoples in other parts of the world. Collectively Indigenous people are said to be the "most researched people in the world" (Smith, 1999, p.3). As researchers, Indigenous people are relatively new travellers. This paper will explore using first person narrative the issues experienced by two of these new travellers. Within this paper Bronwyn Fredericks and Pamela Croft share part of their journey which was driven by process and a commitment to the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander political struggle.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
