Summary
Discusses government attention to, and expenditure on, Indigenous equity in Australia; raises concern surrounding sound understanding of Indigenous social attitudes and priorities; account of cultural theory raises likelihood of difference in outlooks between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people, including those making and implementing policy; reflects on years of scholarly research and official statistical collections having overlooked potentially critical aspects of lndigineity; suggestions of difference emerge from reference to the 2007 Australian Survey of Social Attitudes (AuSSA), author(s) argue attitudes recorded for a small sample in this instrument manifest in Indigenous population at large, policy priorities and directions should be reviewed and possibly revised; article calls for targeted social attitude research among Australia's Indigenous peoples so future policy can be better oriented and calibrated; authors argue national benefits would outweigh the costs via better directed policy making; paper includes background of existing enquiries
