Indigenous academic women, because of her, we can

Amy Thunig

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


The history of formal education, as defined and imposed by colonisers since invasion, has in many ways been one of exclusion, segregation, and harm for the First Nations people of this continent known as Australia. What is accepted and acknowledged as formal education today, in various ways continues to rely on Eurocentric knowledges, perspectives, and histories. So for me as an Indigenous woman, to be able to do what I do, where I do it, I recognise and acknowledge the generations of people who have fought to carve out space for Indigenous knowledges, culture, and bodies in what were previously exclusively spaces of whiteness.
