Joint Newsletter for December 2019

Dear members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and Psychology Interest Group and members of the Australian Indigenous Psychologists Association,

Hello everyone. Welcome to our bumper Christmas edition of joint ATSIPP Interest Group and AIPA Newsletter, our 4th and final newsletter for 2019. It has been a big year with many achievements and sadly, challenges and we have covered the highlights in our previous newsletters. We pay our respects to the families of the young Yuendumu man, Kumanjayi Walker, with his death in custody and understand that this week the court case begins in the Northern Territory. We stand with Yuendumu.

We also celebrate the Uluru climbing ban and are heartened to finally see this ban take place. These two issues did galvanise national social discussion and debate and we hope that we all continue to support each other on social media and in person. The Interest Group has continued meeting regularly and will be planning a gathering at the next APS conference in 2020.

Happy holiday reading! See Link:
