Enriching the scholarly and public understanding of Australian Indigenous cultures and histories
Welcome to NCIS
Acknowledgement of country
We acknowledge and celebrate the First Australians on whose traditional lands we meet, and pay our respects to the elders of the Ngunnawal people past and present.
Led by Professor Mick Dodson, NCIS promotes and initiates cross-disciplinary research and teaching in a wide range of areas of relevance to Indigenous Australians. Through this research, NCIS aims to deepen Australia's understanding of Indigenous cultures and histories and ensure Indigenous knowledge, perspectives and experiences are respected, valued, accessed and incorporated into all learning environments at ANU and beyond. NCIS staff and Higher Degree by Research (HDR) candidates are involved in a range of projects across the field of Indigenous studies.
