This paper will firstly provide a brief overview of issues pertaining to Aboriginal research*issues that I needed to consider when contemplating and undertaking research with Aboriginal women within the community of Rockhampton. This is the broader
landscape in which the research was based and which I believe may be used to inform research with Aboriginal women in other areas. Secondly, I explore issues specific to me as a researcher and, more importantly, as an Indigenous woman researcher. It shows the issues connected with being an Indigenous researcher, that is, as a new traveller within the broader landscape of research. Thirdly, I give a brief overview of how the research process was developed, how supervisors were selected for this research, and some of research methodologies as they relate to this research project with Aboriginal women.
