Abstract: Tangentyere Design Tangentyere Design is an Aboriginal owned architectural practice based in central Australia. As an enterprise of its parent organisation, Tangentyere Council, its mission is to promote—within the built environment—the social and cultural aspirations of Indigenous peoples. This article highlights the challenges faced by a not-for-profit entity working in a commercially competitive environment, and examines the concepts of cultural agency and social enterprise through its building projects and advocacy efforts.
