    Abstract

    The integration of Information Communications Technologies (ICTs) in Australian society is almost taken for granted. The link between habitus and household use of ICT is poorly understood, and many further theoretical developments need to occur before advances in our knowledge transpire. This paper takes a case study approach using grounded theory techniques and develops a conceptual model by drawing on habitus theory as way of explaining the low uptake of ICTs (home internet and computers) in Indigenous households in Australia. The paper illustrates the value of habitus as an ontology to understand ICT adoption from an Australian Indigenous perspective.
