NAU’s Indigenous Heritage and Education in Aboriginal Australia and New Zealand is a three week, field-based program that centers on the areas of heritage management and educational efforts for, by, and with Aboriginal Australian communities in Tasmania and New South Wales, Australia and Hamilton New Zealand. Visits to Aboriginal and Indigenous communities, museums, cultural centers, local agencies, schools, and university centers will inform students about the unique and complex lived experiences of Indigenous Australians and Maori’s.

Students will return home with an appreciation and understanding of the issues Indigenous communities face, both in their own communities and across the world, they will also learn about efforts to revive cultural heritage, and they will bring home new skills to assist their own communities. Through “in-country” cultural tours of important Aboriginal and Indigenous heritage places and connections with Aboriginal Elders, communities, and students, NAU students will have a unique opportunity to foster lifelong connections that will establish global relationships that will have an impact beyond the trip.
