Our principles

Yulang is guided by a set of principles:

  • Respecting diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Informed by Indigenous peoples’ evidence, priorities and rights
  • Holistic, respecting the Aboriginal definition of health and its social, physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental domains, and socioecological model of health’s individual, family, community, sector, system and environment levels at which change occurs
  • Strengths-based and addressing deficit discourse
  • Ethical, adhering to national and jurisdictional guidelines for research and evaluation including reciprocity, respect, cultural continuity, responsibility, spirit and integrity
  • Transfer of knowledge to the next generation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, from previous and current generations, and to non-Indigenous people who hold decision-making power
  • Accountable to governance structures including Elders, Traditional Owners, stakeholders and partners
  • Working in and for unity, respecting First Peoples first in decision-making, in a context of being a minority population; multiple capacities must be built to achieve progress.
