A Gathering of Indigenous Minds!

NPM's biennial 2020 International Indigenous Research Conference (#IIRC20) is moving online!

From 18 - 20 November, we will host a virtual "Gathering of Indigenous Minds" from our base here at Waipapa Marae, University of Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand.

Join us online for three days of live discussions. Be inspired by Indigenous researched solutions.

We are excited to announce that our currently confirmed keynote speakers include world renowned Indigenous scholars Professor Rangi Matamua (Tūhoe) - link here to Rangi's Language of the Stars NPM Seminar and Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith (Ngāti Awa, Ngāti Porou) - link here to Linda's 2016 NPM Conference Presentation. More keynotes will be announced over the coming weeks.

We are mindful that one of the best components of our biennial conference has been the networking opportunities for Indigenous researchers from around the world and so we will be delivering an interactive programme with live audiences and opportunities for Q&A, chats and social connections.

Registrations are now open, with a host of opportunities and options for our wide network of national and international attendees.
