The job of an Indigenous academic is exhausting. The fact that there are so few of us, yet we are asked to comment on everything relating to Indigenous Australia, or to participate on every committee regarding Indigenous Australia is an unreasonable expectation especially when asked to do it for free, and on top of your existing workload. As you can imagine, our time is in demand and precious. However, the most stressful aspect of our role as Indigenous educators and researchers is the mental strain of seeing and understanding a glaring problem that does not seem to change.
