Olsen, Torjer A. – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
There are acceptable ways of studying Indigenous issues as a non-Indigenous scholar. Still, the role and identity of the scholar is important and debated within the study of Indigenous issues.

McDowall, Ailie – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
Our work as educators is entangled in questions of how colonisation privileges particular epistemologies and ontologies, ethical responsibilities and the reproduction of privilege or exclusion through education.
