About us

The Department of Indigenous Studies is an interdisciplinary department within the Faculty of Arts at Macquarie University. Our Department's core business is teaching and research that is by and of interest to Indigenous peoples, and towards prosperous and connected futures. We prioritise projects that are transformative in nature – projects that provide direct benefit to the lives of Indigenous peoples and reflect the needs of communities. We are an all- Indigenous workforce who specialise in their respective disciplines and who are trained in Indigenous research practice.

Indigenous Studies will expand understandings of society by focusing on the diverse experiences, stories and ideas at local, national and international levels: from the Department's immediate connection and commitment to Dharug people, through to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the continent and surrounding Islands, and Indigenous peoples around the globe.
