Kaya! Wanjoo! (Hello! Welcome!)

The University of Western Australia acknowledges that its campus is situated on Noongar land, and that Noongar people remain the spiritual and cultural custodians of their land, and continue to practise their values, languages, beliefs and knowledge.

This guide will help you find information resources relating to the history, culture and philosophy of Indigenous peoples in Australia available to students at UWA.  This guide uses the term 'Indigenous Australians' to refer to Australia's first people. This term refers to 'Aboriginal Australians' and 'Torres Strait Islander people'.
