Before European colonalisation, Australian Indigenous people were healthy and well due to being nomadic, eating nutritious native foods and engaging in sophisticated spiritual and cultural practices (Griffith, 2015; Lawler, 1991; Purdie, Dudgeon, & Walker, 2010). In 2008, the inequalities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people were the largest in the world according to the World Health Organisation. Whilst the Australian Government tried to address these inequalities resulting from historical and ongoing colonalisation, a decade later the mental illness, domestic and family violence, suicide and trauma are increasing at an alarming rate (AHMAC, 2017; Dudgeon, Milroy & Walker, 2014). Consequently, achieving better outcomes for Indigenous peoples is a national research priority in Australia.
