Formatted abstract
The need, is to establish environmental determinants which are responsive to the Aboriginal Population. The problem,is the complexity of definition of that population, and is a product of instability and behavioural inconsistencies, resulting from an indeterminate process of transition between two cultures.

Failure of the present housing provision for Aboriginals is evident quantitatively, as well as in terms of environmental suitability to the population for whom it is intended to benefit. Prom the evidence of environmental misfit, and a background which shows a lack of freedom and self reliance, Aboriginals have become welfare dependent and passive acceptors of the control over their lives. The policies which create this situation must change, before more fitting environments can be obtained.

The solution, offered in this work is developed from the Aboriginals need for freedom and self determination, and proposes that the provision of 'fixed type' european standard housing be replaced by a co-operative form of 'self help' programme with an operational base extending from an involvement in the design, siting and community arrangement to construction completion and tenure.
