Abstract Story-telling is central to the work I do. I use various forms of media to document stories from within our Indigenous community including film/video, audio-recordings, digital stories, art, sound scapes and on-line journals. My research question was: In what ways can multi-media enrich the telling of stories from an Indigenous point of view? Other important examinations of this research are: • Analysis of the process of previous projects, and the effect these have had on participants—why have past approaches not been effective? How can this project learn from those mistakes? • How can a researcher facilitate consultation and create community engagement within Aboriginal communities? • What are the outcomes of ‘Pitcha This’? How can a community utilize the outcomes of the project? Within the Indigenous language there is an adaptation to the English language, this language is not recognised as a dialect but I am writing this exegesis with the colloquial idiom commonly used in speech within my mob, meaning my Indigenous community. This particularly applies to the language used to describe the process I adopted for the Pitcha This project.
