Examination of the theoretical aspects of indigeneity, linking to practical application of global indigenous identities. An understanding of what it means to have an indigenous identity will be achieved through researching different societies.
Indigeneity is a topic that is pertinent in today’s global society. Understanding global indigenous identities provides people with a better cultural understanding of today’s transnational societies. Having the skills to understand different indigenous identities is beneficial for any person who works within education, social work, science, health, commerce and politics, and enables people to be accepting of all individuals within any society. The Indigenous Identities paper is also beneficial for people who want to understand their own indigenous identity as they are challenged and encouraged to explore how their own identity is considered within each of the stated sectors.
