Kaupapa: Indigenous Social Workers: Reclaim, Rename, Reframe.
In 2004 at the IFSW conference in Adelaide, Australia a group of indigenous people held an impromptu gathering outside of the conference and agreed that a conference needed to be initiated that was for and by indigenous social workers.
In keeping with the decision the University of Hawai’i generously offered to host the first conference in 2007; followed by the second conference in 2013 hosted by the University of Manitoba, Canada; the 3rd conference in Darwin, Australia in 2015 was hosted by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people; the 4th conference hosted by the Sămi people in Alta Norway in 2017 and the indigenous Taiwanese social workers in Hualien, Taiwan hosted the 5th conference in 2019.
The 6th International Indigenous Voices in Social Work will be in Tamaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand.
The kaupapa for the 6th conference is to return to the original decision of the conference being for and by indigenous social workers and in particular encouraging indigenous social work practitioners to attend and present their work.
