Abstract

Objective: This paper examines the factors affecting adoption of information and communication technologies (computers and the Internet) in Australian Indigenous households across three Indigenous communities, remote, rural and urban. Drawing on the sociological notion of structure and agency it is argued that being engaged in external fields influences Indigenous household ICT adoption. This paper develops a conceptual schema by drawing on Bourdieu's theory of habitus to explain the low uptake of ICTs in Indigenous households across Australia. Conclusions: Evidence suggests that there is more commonality across diverse communities than differences.
