Indigenous names for Indigenous Support Centres as part of the Welcome to (University) Country
Starrs, D. Bruno (2014) Indigenous names for Indigenous Support Centres as part of the Welcome to (University) Country. Aboriginal Australian Studies, 1, pp. 111-118.
The significance of naming Indigenous Support Centres (ISCs) with Indigenous language terminology — given that such reconciliatory acts may serve as symbolic means to improve the cultural efficacy of an Australian university’s Welcome to Country on offer to Indigenous Australian students — is explored and discussed in this paper. A survey of all 39 Australian universities was conducted, and the results regarding the Indigenous naming of their ISCs were tabulated and compared.
