A disgrace and kick in the teeth for Indigenous Australian Studies

It is an absolute disgrace that the world’s leading research, collecting and publishing institution in the field of Australian Indigenous studies is forced to beg for philanthropic input to enable it to function after almost 10 years of NO increase in their budget appropriation from government. Just another kick in the teeth for Indigenous Australians: 
" Consolidating and elevating the profile, reputation and authority of AIATSIS through a strategic approach to its external communications and stakeholder relations activities. This planning  would include review of options for philanthropic support and for increasing opportunities to undertake consultancy activity." pg 90 AIATSIS Resources and planned performance
