The Contexts of Indigenous Music Activity in the Kimberley: Pedagogic Models for Aboriginal Music.
Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, v29 n1 p1-11 2001
Music educators with little experience in Aboriginal culture have trouble teaching Aboriginal music in schools. Indigenous music activity in the Kimberley region of Western Australia illustrates four contexts in which Indigenous music could be studied: local versus national Indigenous music, and Indigenous music in relation to history, place, and politics. Enabling students to think in symbolic terms is an important aim of music education. (Contains 35 references.) (TD)
