What is already known about this topic:
(1) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples face continued adversity, prejudice, and discrimination on their own land.
(2) This heightened propensity to be targeted for prejudice is a known social determinant of poorer health and wellbeing.
(3) Understanding racial attitudes towards this group is an imperative step in understanding and combating this health disparity.
What this topic adds:
(1) There is a paucity of academic research exploring negativity towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
(2)The limited quantity of evidence does establish a range of correlates with negative attitudes that can be clustered into four themes – demographic factors, ideological variables, individual differences factors, and intergroup factors.
(3) More research is warranted in this domain to further establish a body of evidence on intergroup attitudes towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, with a renewed focus needed on prejudice reduction techniques.
