Abstract

This chapter explores the critical importance of ethical Indigenous knowledge engagement in the knowing of living heritage landscapes and their associated built environment education, and professional practices across Australia. <<The taproot is the root of the tree that goes the deepest. In my family taproots are really important because, as my mother always says, ‘We didn’t get here by ourselves. We have others to thank for that and we should acknowledge it’. Those family members that make up the taproots are still very much alive and living with us today, and this reinforces a sense of self, belonging, and place. Never forget your taproots because they’ll never forget you (Tjalaminu Mia 2007: 208).>>
