Abstract

How we communicate with each other has exponentially grown over the past few decades. Who would have thought that we reached a time where politicians tweet national policy announcements such as COVID-19 cases each day, or a YouTuber can have 75 million subscribers from around the world, to people communicating mainly through an image on Instagram. Further, we have known for some time, that many Indigenous peoples value communication through a range of methods including artworks and dance (Barton & Barton, 2014). In Australia for example, Aboriginal people from Arnhem Land presented the Yirrkala Bark Petitions to the Australian government in 1963 as the ‘first formal assertion of Indigenous native title’ (National Museum Australia, 2020, p. 1).
