On Indigenous Spirituality as a viable foundation for sustainable living & development: A Comparative Study of the Practices of the Yolŋu Aboriginal women in Australia and the Northern Sámi women in Norway

Lilliani Tahaafe-Williams

Abstract
What the world decides to implement before 2030 will determine the longevity of all life on earth and the revertability of the climate crisis. Thus far, most solutions to development and sustainability have been rooted in European culture and values. Such values have normalised a predominately exclusionary model of human existence that encourages injustice and exploitation of the human person and nature to support economic growth. My research advocates for Indigenous spirituality as a foundational and enduring system of human existence - that values and respects all life on earth equally - as a progressive and contextual ontology that can redefine and reimagine sustainability. My research will be a comparative analysis of Indigenous female knowledge and practices from Northern Norway and Arnhem land as underrepresented carriers and guides to Indigenous life (systems/spirituality) that have enabled Indigenous peoples to navigate, endure and survive for thousands of years.

Who got married in 2018 and why does it matter? A demographic profile of Australia’s same-sex marriage pioneers

Who got married in 2018 and why does it matter? A demographic profile of Australia’s same-sex marriage pioneers


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Fiona Shalley, Research Fellow, Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University

Date: May 20, 2021

Time: 10:30am to 11:30am

Abstract
Same-sex marriage is one of the most significant socio-demographic phenomena of the early 21st century and Australia became the 27th country to adopt marriage equality in late 2017. So who got married? This presentation will provide a demographic profile of the same-sex couples who married which prompts questions about why marriage was important to them, and the impacts on future fertility (how many are likely to conceive or adopt children?), mobility (will labour force and fertility decisions influence where couples might settle?) and wellbeing (will they continue to experience differential experiences of discrimination?). Unique estimates of Australia’s sexual minority population has allowed us to calculate marriage rates for the first time, and these showed the rate of female same-sex marriage was higher than for male same-sex marriage and twice that of different-sex marriage. Being able to add the 2019 data point has also show that early same-sex marriage trends in Australia are high comparative to other countries. We discuss results in the context of the international experience of same-sex marriage and where Australia is geographically situated.

About Research Fellow Fiona Shalley

Fiona Shalley is a PhD candidate and her research interest focuses on the concepts of identity in population statistics. With a 20 year career with the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Fiona is using a number of different national datasets to explore how identities are disclosed (or not) and whether current classifications and the categories within are sufficient to contemporary demographic needs. She currently works as a Research Associate with the Northern Institute in the Demography and Growth Planning team.
