Cultural Care and Sensitivity

The University Archives hold sensitive content in various formats including audio, film, photographs, and printed material, which may be considered distressing or offensive. First Nations peoples should be aware that we hold material that contain images and names of deceased people, which may cause sadness, particularly to the relatives of these people.


The records presented on this website may contain descriptions and words which may not reflect current understandings. In particular, material regarding First Nations peoples and cultures has historically been created and recorded by non-Indigenous people and may not have had the input of First Nations peoples themselves. As a result, this material may contain inaccuracies and misinterpretations, or words and descriptions which could be considered insensitive, outdated and/or offensive in today's context. While we do not necessarily support such language and views, it is considered important historically to present this information without alteration.


Care and discretion should be taken when viewing these records and their descriptions.


We take cultural safety seriously and understand that we have a duty of care to everyone. You can inform us if you come across material that should be recognised as culturally sensitive and that require further consideration around access conditions and restrictions. Please review our Takedown Notice. If you require further assistance, please contact us.
