Indigenous research summit

Over the past 2 days I have been on Wiradjuri land in Dubbo at the Charles Sturt University Indigenous Research Summit. It has been a rich experience listening to and learning from outstanding people who are working across Australia and New Zealand. The keynote speakers were:
  • Lesley Rameka, University of Waikato
  • Maggie Walter, University of Tasmania
Some words that were repeated throughout the 2 days were:
  • respect, reframe, reclaim, revitalise, resist
  • language, law, land, look, listen, learn
