2022 IIRC Conference Website

Building the foundations for flourishing Indigenous Futures

https://www.iirc.ac.nz

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is the founding host of the biennial International Indigenous Research Conference (IIRC). The IIRC has a well established reputation as the premier international Indigenous conference and consistently attracts high numbers of national and international participants. IIRC is a time for reflection, sharing, planning, innovating. IIRC offers participants a range of engagement modes: master classes, premiere keynotes, guest speakers and time to connect and renew. As a deeply related community of Indigenous researchers internationally, we come together in the one place every two years, at Waipapa marae, Waipapa Taumata Rau - The University of Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand.

In 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the safety of participants and Indigenous communities, IIRC was held as a successful online event. We will be doing the same in 2022 making it easier and safer to connect our global community of Indigenous researchers.
