Indigenous Australian people have been colonised, marginalised and segregated. This has caused overwhelming trauma in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities. As Indigenous scholars, we believe it is our responsibility to confront discrimination and work toward equity for our community. Therefore, it is our objective to challenge the status quo and get others to consider Indigenous Australian ways of knowing, being and doing. The aim of this chapter is to de-objectify the scholar and concede bias. This is a very Indigenous approach to writing, researching and teaching. We will examine the impact of Aileen Moreton-Robinson and other Indigenous scholars on Indigenous Standpoint Theory and the furthering of Indigenous knowledges. Further to this, we discuss the complexities of decolonising university curricula for Indigenous students, Indigenous ways of knowledge-sharing and the relevance of this for critical social work practice.
