In 1911, Australian researchers predicted the extinction of Aboriginal people. However, in 2023 we remain and are in conversation towards a constitutional voice in parliament. In light of this, we wonder what might an Indigenous Future look like?
The Indigenous Futures Platform aims to ensure Australia’s Indigenous futures across the nation’s culture and economy are supported and considered in the faculty’s research, learning and partnership activities.
Scholarly activities traverse multiple disciplines and embed Indigenous knowledge, values and research methods to increase understanding of the history and nature of Country whilst respecting Indigenous cultural and intellectual property, as well as Indigenous data sovereignty.
