Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship

Priority area: 
Minoru Hokari (1971-2004) was a path-breaking scholar who made outstanding contributions towards 'cross-culturalising' historical practice and developing a respectful, collaborative research strategy with Indigenous Australians.

After his untimely death in 2004, Minoru's colleagues and friends in the ANU Australian Centre for Indigenous History in the Research School of Social Sciences, at The Australian National University decided to establish a memorial scholarship in his name.

Donations in support of the scholarship assist a postgraduate student to conduct fieldwork or related research in Australian Indigenous history.

A graduate of Hitotsubashi University (MEc 1996) and The Australian National University (PhD 2001), Minoru conducted fieldwork amongst Gurindji elders, who he acknowledged as exceptional historians in their own right. His untimely death in 2004 curtailed a very promising career.
