Abstract/Summary Around two and a half percent of Australian citizens identify as indigenous, and this proportion continues to grow. Although indigenous peoples belong to hundreds of different cultural communities and language groups, the common experiences of colonization have led to the formation of a national indigenous identity and political movement. A prominent cultural and political distinction, however, exists between the Torres Strait Islander people of Northern Queensland and other groups (often collectively termed “Aboriginal”).
