    Abstract

    This chapter aimed to explore if the impact and recovery from Cyclone Tracy differed for Indigenous and non-Indigenous groups due to inherent sociocultural or political factors or pressures. The chapter presents results around the main themes identified and discussed by respondents: warnings and preparedness; impacts; aftermath and evacuation; returning to Darwin; longer-term recovery; and resilience. A significant amount of research has demonstrated that the impacts of disasters are felt disproportionately worldwide due to inherent underlying socio-cultural, economic and political vulnerabilities.
