We specialise in the areas of languages and cultural expression, native title and traditional ownership, education and cultural transmission, governance development and public policy, health and wellbeing, and land and water.
Indigenous culture and heritage aims to support the active practice of culture through the protection and transmission of knowledge.
Governance is the way a group of people organise themselves credibly and effectively to collectively achieve the things that matter to them. To do that people need rules and values about who they are as a group, and how they behave and relate to each other.
Our health and wellbeing research focuses on improving the lives of Indigenous Australians through our own study outcomes and supporting others working in this area.
Land and water aims to build a greater understanding of Indigenous peoples’ relationships both with country and the governance of their lands and waters, and government policies affecting Australian land and waters.
We connect individuals and organisations interested in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages and cultural expressions .
We protect the Native Title and traditional ownership of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people through research and policy advice.
