Abstract: 
Music history research of Indigenous and Scottish groups in Ipswich, Australia, reveals that people have had varying levels of access and engagement in music making that is related to their music heritage and culture. There is no suitable terminology to describe this active cultural engagement, so I propose the term ‘ethnomusicking.’ In this paper I will outline my concept of ethnomusicking and discuss examples from participatory action research. The aim is to analyse the social significance of ethnomusicking and the role of the music museum curator in facilitating community-based education – particularly the design of programs for healing and reconciliation.
