Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Data Archive

Offensive material

Some of the material deposited into ATSIDA may contain information that is sensitive and offensive in today’s standards due to the historical context in which it was created.

Although ATSIDA works closely with depositors to ensure that ethical practices are followed, there may be historically significant material held within the archive that may be offensive. Special care notices will be made available on the ATSIDA web site to warn users that they may view material that is derogatory.

Special care notice

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, researchers and other users should be aware that material in this dataset may contain material that is considered offensive. The data has been retained in its original format because it represents an evidential record of language, beliefs or other cultural situations at a point in time.
