Cultural Competence Resources

With the assistance of the National Centre of Cultural Competence, the RARE Program has curated well-cited and respected references that cover a range of both general and contextually relevant resources to aide in cultulral competence training.

Upon completion, you should have a better understanding of Australia’s colonisation and its ignorance of and impacts on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.   The below resources are a mix of film, articles, books, case studies, and documentaries.
