The Australian National University (ANU): Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship Fund


A pathbreaking scholar and inspiring colleague, Minoru Hokari (1971-2004) made outstanding contributions towards 'cross-culturalising' historical practice and towards developing a respectful collaborative research strategy with Indigenous Australians. 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 early death in 2004 curtailed a very promising career. His colleagues and friends in the Australian Centre for Indigenous History in the Research School of Social Sciences at The Australian National University have decided to establish a scholarship as a memorial. This scholarship, planned for award annually when funds are sufficient, is intended to assist a postgraduate student to conduct fieldwork or related research in Australian indigenous history.
