National Centre for Culture Competence

Kinship module

The Kinship Module project is a pilot online education program that promotes Aboriginal cultural education at a university level. The program aims to convey a deeper understanding of the richly complex Kinship system by learning about the components of Moiety, Totem, Skin Names, language and traditional affiliations and individual identity. In addition, there is a collection of Aboriginal Community Narratives that focus on the impact of cultural conflict and of cultural understandings held by Aboriginal people. The resources will help staff and students interact in ways that respect and allow Aboriginal voices to be highlighted.
