Nau mai, haere mai!

After navigating the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re excited to return to an in-person format, fostering connections and solidarity among Indigenous researchers. Since our last in-person conference in 2018, we’ve embraced online formats in 2020 and 2022, but nothing replaces the richness of face-to-face interactions.

Whītiki Taua : Research Solidarities is our conference theme

About IIRC

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is the founding host of the biennial International Indigenous Research Conference (IIRC). The IIRC has a well established reputation as the premier international Indigenous conference and consistently attracts high numbers of national and international participants. IIRC is a time for reflection, sharing, planning, innovating. IIRC offers participants a range of engagement modes: premiere keynotes, guest speakers and time to connect and renew. As a deeply related community of Indigenous researchers internationally, we come together in the one place every two years, at Waipapa marae, Waipapa Taumata Rau – The University of Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand. We look forward to meeting you at IIRC2024.
