Yet if people are not resident on their lands, then obviously there are fewer opportunities to exercise these skills. In turn, involvement in such activities may well assist in developing resilience by creating healthier people (Burgess et al. 2005). Such work is inherently of value in Aboriginal eyes. If it can be linked effectively with wider cultural interests then it is even more desirable and rewarding (Davies et al. 2008). Policies that support resilient settlements and those that develop deep Indigenous engagement in natural resource management may be mutually supportive.
