About this Guide

Welcome to the Indigenous Studies Subject and Research guide.

This guide is a starting point for your research and study. Its purpose is to be a permanent online place that gathers together selected resources and acts as a gateway to others. It is a place where you can return to time and again.

There are some suggestions of important resources, but there are a lot more than we've listed here. 

Explore the Library website and contact us if we can support you in finding what you need.

Indigenous Studies at MQ

Indigenous Studies asks broad questions about perspective, power, methodology, justice, self-representation and knowledge, in order to develop new understandings of society and the world.

This means that students and scholars of Indigenous Studies learn and practice skills of critical thinking and communication that have a wide range of applications in and beyond the Indigenous context.

In terms of library resources, this means a keen focus on critically assessing resources, and in particular, a focus on the methodology used in the research. Marginalization has meant that research is often undertaken by others, so it is important to situate the research and the researcher. Ask yourself who created the information and for what purpose. It is useful to bear in mind the worldview of the author, what are their qualifications and why the research was undertaken.
