Following the successful staging of the 2019 National Indigenous Women's Conference: Empowering Change and the 10th National Indigenous Men's Conference: Black and Proud in Alice Springs, ICS had secured the participation of international First Nations keynote speakers from United States of America, New Zealand and Canada namely Clinical psychologist Dr. Joseph B. Stone, PhD, a member of Native American Blackfeet Tribe, OKKAN (Sundance) and Anasaki-pikuni ceremonialist and New Zealand’s First Nations health psychologist Dr. Amber Logan, a traditional Kahungunu Māori Wahine, New Zealand Health Psychologist and a Doctoral Fellow in Public Health at Otago University.

Running two conferences in one location was only made possible by ICS’ versatility to offer ground-breaking double opportunities for delegates to attend two conferences with one registration. Australia has a wealth of talent in our Indigenous communities, striving to further enhance the quality of life and wellbeing nationwide. We do not have to re-invent the wheel to succeed which goes with the 2019 conferences’ philosophy of strength through interagency cooperation at local, state, national and even international levels. Hence, we encourage anyone interested in attending to register early as numbers are filling fast.
