Aurora Relfection - Kate Barton

My name is Kate Barton and I am a third-year law student from Canberra. I recently completed a six-week Aurora internship at the National Centre of Indigenous Studies (NCIS). The Aurora Internship Program places students and young professionals in Indigenous organisations such as community legal centres, local councils and research-focused institutions. There are two intakes throughout the year and successful applicants can be placed Australia-wide.

My internship centred around Indigenous citizenship. I was tasked with creating a timeline of events, legislation, policy, cases and moments of advocacy that saw citizenship rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples either restricted or broadened. I was also encouraged to research the personal stories of Indigenous Australians, to give real voice and feeling to the timeline.

The NCIS is truly an interdisciplinary centre of research with an incredible mix of social scientists, anthropologists and legal scholars to name a few. Both the academic and administrative staff were incredibly welcoming from the moment I walked in, and I truly felt I had made a home for myself. I cannot speak highly enough of my experience and would happily recommend anyone interested in doing a research-based project to get in touch with the NCIS.
