Indigenous Studies

Indigenous Studies

Indigenous Studies is a growing field that promotes and values diverse international indigenous perspectives in a changing global environment.

Indigenous Studies builds understanding and knowledge of core indigenous concepts, including indigenous worldviews, cultural and historical understandings, ethical, methodological, political and public policy demands and imperatives and environmental and sustainable developments.

This postgraduate subject takes an interdisciplinary approach to the complex intercultural dynamics of colonial and post-colonial societies, and is grounded in the experience of Māori in New Zealand.

Indigenous Studies can develop your skills for a career in local or national government, community leadership, policy and law, research, iwi, tribal and political advisement, cultural representation, teaching, resource management and more.
