About the Author

Professor Marcia Langton AM PhD Macq U, BA (Hons) ANU, FASSA is one of Australia's most important voices for Indigenous Australia. She first became an Indigenous rights activist as a student at the University of Queensland, before spending time in Papua New Guinea, Japan and North America learning about those countries' peoples and cultures. On her return to Australia Marcia Langton graduated in Anthropology at ANU. Since then, she has worked with the Central Land Council, the Cape York Land Council, and for the 1989 Royal Commission into Aboriginal deaths in custody.

Professor Langton has received many accolades, including an Order of Australia. She has held the Foundation Chair of Australian Indigenous Studies at The University of Melbourne since February 2000. As an anthropologist and geographer, she has made a significant contribution to government and non-government policy as well as to Indigenous studies. Professor Langton has written several books, both academic and popular, including First Australians (MUP, 2009), co-authored with Rachel Perkins, which was written n conjunction with an SDS documentary by the same name. She is also regularly asked to comment on issues related to Indigenous rights and art. In 2016 she was honoured as a University of Melbourne Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor. The following year, Professor Marcia Langton was appointed as the first Associate Provost at the University of Melbourne.
