Abstract

This article is based on my honours thesis, ‘You or Me? A Social Framework in support of Indigenous community organisation’. It gives an overview of the reflective learning processes analysed in the thesis as I positioned myself as a community development practitioner in the Indigenous research context in Australia. It draws specifically on theory pertaining to participatory action research, Indigenist research and living theory action research.
