The Australian Journal of Indigenous Education (AJIE) has played a vital role in raising awareness of educational issues for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; fostering debate among researchers, government representatives and community groups; and sharing stories of success between both Indigenous and non-Indigenous practitioners positioned in the broad area of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education. The dialogue which has taken place in AJIE over the past 30 years maps out the social, political and cultural history of Indigenous education in Australia, and draws attention to the shifting paradigms, problems and practical outcomes.
