“The term ‘cultural respect’ refers to the recognition, protection and continued advancement of the inherent rights, cultures and traditions of Aboriginal people. Cultural respect is achieved when cultural differences are respected.”
~ Australian Health Ministers’ Advisory Council (2004): Cultural Respect Framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health 2004-2009 p7
Comment: It’s saddening to say, but in my experience, I see and hear little to none of this — cultural respect, that is — in my work, my community, nor amongst friends, colleagues and/or family. The one-world, one-view, “we are family” monoculture, or uniculture (as in uniform, unified) virus has now spread far and wide in the past few thousand years.
