    Abstract

    The 'Teaching from Country' program provided the opportunity and the funding for Yol{eng}u (north-east Arnhem Land Aboriginal) knowledge authorities to participate actively in the academic teaching of their languages and cultures from their remote homeland centres using new digital technologies. As two knowledge systems and their practices came to work together, so too did two divergent epistemologies and metaphysics, and challenges to our understandings of our ethical behaviour. This paper uses an examination of the philosophical and pedagogical work of the Yol{eng}u Elders and their students to reflect upon ethical teaching and research in postcolonial knowledge practices.
