Abstract

In some parts of Australia, 'Which Way' is used in a general way in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander conversation to imply where to now? Which way do we go? Where are you going or we going? How is that person connected? Where are they positioned within the community? How does that work? By asking Which Way Public Indigenous Health Research? I am questioning where is Indigenous Health Research at? How is it positioned past, present and future. There has been a long history of health research conducted on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Linda Tuhiwai Smith (1999:3) makes the statement that she has heard "we [Indigenous peoples] are the most researched people in the world". It is these experiences that provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a wealth of experience and knowledge about research and informs the ways research takes place within communities and with institutions and universities. This paper will focus on my reflections on the changing nature of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research. In sharing my reflections I will offer glimpses of research undertaken in the past, examples of current happenings and outline some of the current health research stands in direct opposition to the research of the past. I will conclude with suggestions of what I think we can expect to see in the future.
