ExperienceI have been tutoring students from primary, secondary and university levels since 2014.
Anthropology grades were distinction or higher.
My thesis study explored Aboriginal cultural identity associated with Deebing Creek and Purga Missions located in southeast Queensland. In particular, it analyses how useful the historical record is at identifying cultural identity and change. Merlan’s notion of ‘the intercultural’ (and the associated debate) is used to consider human engagement and the transformation created from the interaction between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. The study argues that Aboriginal identities at the Missions, constructed by relational and structural power ultimately reshaped identity through reinvention of new ideas from non-Aboriginal people and Aboriginal people to then be applied to Aboriginal traditional structures. Central to the construction of Indigeneity is a formulation of values both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal that shape what it means to be Aboriginal and how to still be Aboriginal in the context of assimilation pressures.
