This subject explores the various ways in which indigenous people maintain deeply-rooted connections and a sense of place with their homelands, as well as to the corporeal and spiritual world. Examples from Australia, Canada and the Pacific are used to demonstrate that indigenous peoples have various ways of perceiving and knowing landscapes and aquatic environments. The categorisations and classification of landscape units by Indigenous peoples is explored so as to illustrate how indigenous perceptions of landscape differ from non-indigenous perceptions and construction of place. The subject provides awareness of cultural values and traditional customs which bind indigenous people to place. Students taking this subject are encouraged to attend a (non-compulsory) fieldtrip to an indigenous community in the winter break (5 nights). Alternative arrangements will be made for students who do not attend the field trip
