Centre for Native Title Anthropology

Promoting professional practice and supporting career pathways for native title anthropologists

The Centre for Native Title Anthropology (CNTA) has been operating since 2010 and aims to enhance the practice of native title anthropology in Australia through a series of innovative programs and workshops.

A unique collaboration between the ANU and the Australian Government, CNTA's activities target a number of areas relevant to the progression of native title claims.

CNTA’s programs provide: 

  • training and development for anthropologists to smooth the transition from study to a career in native title
  • professional development and support for anthropologists, particularly mid-career anthropologists, to enhance retention of expertise in the native title sector
  • stronger linkages between academic and applied anthropological work

Ultimately, the CNTA's programs develop the professionalisation of native title anthropology which contributes to the timely progression of native title claims.
