This report, funded by the First Nations Foundation, aims to better understand how Indigenous young people navigate the financial economy. It looks at the relationship between the Indigenous and mainstream economies and asks a series of questions:

• How are Indigenous young people positioned in the mainstream economy?

• How does this position differ from non-Indigenous young people?

• How do Indigenous young people traverse the Indigenous and the mainstream economies?

The report uses literature on Indigenous young people, young people across the Australian population and the mainstream and Indigenous economies. It also uses data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ (ABS) 2006 and 2011 Australian Census of Population and Housing to compare Indigenous and non-Indigenous mainstream economic indicators over time.
