Globalizing indigeneity

This project supports the development of long-term strategic partnerships in the Pacific (The University of Hawaii) and North America (The University of Victoria, BC, Canada) to develop a network of scholars who share a passion and commitment in the exploration of Indigeneity in both local and global contexts.

This project facilitates an improved awareness of issues that confront Indigenous populations in Australia, the Pacific and North America and in doing so creates new opportunities for the development of shared research initiatives that seek to make positive contributions in the areas that may include health, education, sport, the arts, justice, the economy and environment.  Critically this project enables local perspectives and experience with Indigenous focussed research to be shared and enhanced through the building of global networks of Indigeneity.
