Abstract

In collaboration with biological scientists at Northern Territory University and Bawinaga Aboriginal Corporation in central Arnhem Land, Jon Altman aims to generate creative ideas about development futures for Aboriginal people living on Aboriginal land. By broadening the notion of economy and development to include the customary economy, the hybrid economy model includes important Indigenous contributions which currently remain unquantified and unrecognised in mainstream calculations of economic worth. A proper understanding of the hybrid economy requires a hybrid analytical and intellectual framework that combines science, social sciences and Indigenous knowledge systems.
