Stylised Indigenous artworkIndigenous Studies will expand your understanding of society by focusing on the diverse experiences, stories and ideas within Indigenous cultures 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 country and surrounding Islands, and Indigenous knowledges around the globe.

Indigenous peoples have always been global, living side by side with other nations with diverse cultures. Indigenous peoples have faced grave, catastrophic crises — environmental, economic, political — and they have persisted and developed strategies for engaging in new climates and contexts. Indigenous peoples view the world in relational and interdependent terms, an epistemological and ontological facet often missing from Eurocentric worldviews.
