From women entrepreneurs, to battlers trying to get a break, this is an insight into remote Aboriginal communities and their battle to survive. We have heard the stories about the dismal employment opportunities for Aboriginal people in remote communities. The fact is, it is difficult for most people in remote communities to find consistent work. In this episode we meet the battlers who are demonstrating incredible resilience, as well as the entrepreneurs who are turning Aboriginal knowledge into income and in turn creating opportunities for many Australians.
This is part of a recent study on the wellbeing of Aboriginal people by Prof Sheree Cairney. It is Part 2 of a three -part documentary series producer by Geonewmedia for the research Institute NINTI. It is an example of how short documentaries can be used to share real stories from the research findings and engage the wider community.
