Abstract

First Nations youth in Australia are the future leaders of their communities and represent over half the Indigenous population; as such their voices and wellbeing needs are vital for their communities' brighter future. This thesis weaves together Indigenous and Western theoretical perspectives to identify the wellbeing needs of First Nations students’ attending university. The research put First Nations higher education youth’s voices and agency at the epicentre, enabling Indigenous higher education youth to define what their wellbeing needs are, thus providing future theory, research, and practice with new insights and directions.
