The principal aim of the Footprints in Time study is to follow the developmental pathways of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to discover what helps Indigenous children 'grow up strong'. To facilitate this, the predominantly Indigenous LSIC Steering Committee determined that the study design and research questions should be driven by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing, being and doing. A comprehensive overview of the study's early days can be found in Chapter 3 of Walter, Martin and Bodkin-Andrews' (eds.) 2017 book, Indigenous Children Growing Up Strong. The study provides information for individuals, families, communities, service providers, researchers and governments to design and implement culturally appropriate policies and programs to improve outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.[Publisher summary, ed] Includes bibliographical references.
