This assignment is an opportunity for you to tell a story on a specific Indigenous health topic and it can either be from a personal or professional perspective.
You can choose the medium or way of telling this story and these can include: recorded oral presentation, poster/picture/collage or writing down someone’s story.
The main requirement of the assignment is to do a ‘biography’ of an Indigenous person or an autobiography (if you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person yourself) as a ‘representative’ or ‘personalisation’ of a specific Indigenous health topic. This is about putting the ‘face to the facts’ as it were and telling the stories that come with the statistics.
You can choose an Indigenous person involved either as a client or a worker in an Indigenous health setting, tell their story and tie it in with some background or an overview of the Indigenous health issue.
If you don’t work in the Indigenous health area or personally know any Indigenous persons that you could relate to for this assignment; you could look into the lives of some well-known Indigenous Australians who have battled some kind of health issue. For example:
