Video highlights misconceptions Indigenous Australians face

Bond University has released a short video featuring 12 Indigenous students answering a series of uncomfortable questions highlighting the common misconceptions they face, to mark NAIDOC Week.

The seven-minute video, inspired by ABC's popular series 'You Can't Ask That' and released on Bond University's social media platforms, aims to shine a light on some of the insensitive remarks young Indigenous Australians are presented with on a regular basis.

Bond University has experienced significant growth in its Indigenous cohort since 2012, with 66 Indigenous students currently studying at the independent Gold Coast university.

The University’s Nyombil Centre provides dedicated study, personal, professional and cultural support for Bond’s Indigenous students.

The Centre comprises of a suite of rooms where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students can go at any time to study, socialise, network with other Indigenous students and seek advice from staff.

In addition to fostering their academic and professional progression, the Centre also fulfils an important cultural role, connecting students with the local Indigenous community through a range of activities, events and mentoring opportunities.
