Department of Indigenous Studies
Acknowledgement of Country:
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the Macquarie University land, the Wattmattageal clan of the Darug nation, whose cultures and customs have nurtured, and continue to nurture, this land, since the Dreamtime. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.
With a focus on Indigenous peoples, knowledges and experiences, Indigenous Studies asks broader questions about perspective, power, methodology, justice, self-representation and knowledge in order to develop new understandings of society and the world.
Our students and scholars learn and practice skills of critical thinking and communication that have a wide range of applications in and beyond Indigenous contexts. Read more about us
Indigenous Student Support:
Walanga Muru, Macquarie University's Office of Indigenous Strategy, provides indigenous student support and cultural advice. Information for current and future indigenous students and contact details for general enquiries can be found here.
