Leadership

Factsheet

The English terms ‘leadership’ and ‘leader’ may be a foreign concept in many Aboriginal and Torres StraitIslander languages.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership is exercised according to different values than it is in the wider Australian society. Strong relationships with family and close kin, and values of demand sharing and mutual responsibility are at the very heart of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership practices.
