Indigenous Australian Dictionary of Biography Project – seeking nominations

We are embarking on a project to produce approximately 190 new biographies of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for the Australian Dictionary of Biography.  We are now seeking nominations of Indigenous Australian individuals to be included. We are especially interested in nominations of people who lived up until the 1940s.

Please send this nomination form to if you have suggestions of relevant Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people to include. If you only know rough details about the nominated person, please name them anyway as this can still be a useful starting point for our project. You may nominate as many Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander subjects as you like. All nominations will be considered by our national advisory committee. If you have any questions please contact Shino via email.
