Indigenous Student Study Tour: Being Indigenous in a Global World

In September and October 2015, 19 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander law and humanities students under the supervision of Associate Professor Alex Reilly visited four Universities in New Zealand and Canada to learn from and share with Maori and Canadian First Nations students and academics.

The trip confronted students with the deeply personal question of what it means to be an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australian, and what is the common experience of being ‘Indigenous’ for Indigenous people around the world. The trip was a new endeavour for the law school and the University. The attached report provides an overview of the tour from its initial conception to its outcomes, which remain on-going.
