ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The Lowitja Institute International Indigenous Health and Wellbeing conference will be an Indigenous space built on First Nations knowledges and values. ​

It will be a space to connect Indigenous peoples, and non-Indigenous colleagues, and share the journey together.  ​

Through the conference theme, the Institute invites an important discussion about the futures we want as Indigenous peoples and our contribution to the wellbeing of the planet.
