Over more than 30 years, WIPCE has grown to become a major international event in the Indigenous education movement.
WIPCE draws Indigenous representatives from across the globe to share successes and strategies for culturally grounded education.
WIPCE conferences attract Indigenous education experts, practitioners, scholars, students and communities. As a result, WIPCE is the largest and most diverse Indigenous education forum in the world.
The 12th WIPCE will be held at Tarndanya (place of the red kangaroo) in South Australia.
WIPCE 2020 will feature an exciting Indigenous education program of keynote presentations, networking, interactive workshops, yarning circles, master classes with an associated rich and diverse cultural program.
Full WIPCE program details will be released in 2019.
The Kaurna Nation
The Kaurna are the original people of Adelaide and the Adelaide Plains. The area now occupied by the city and parklands – called by the Kaurna Tarndanya (red kangaroo place) – is the heart of Kaurna country.
The Kaurna spoke a complex language which reflected their sophisticated culture and deep knowledge of the environment.
Ninna Marni is a Kaurna greeting and Panpapanpalya the term for conferences.
