About this scholarship


Each year the School of History in the ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences may offer the Minoru Hokari Memorial Scholarship to assist a Higher Degree Research (HDR) student conduct fieldwork or related research in Australian Indigenous history.

Funding has been provided by donors, led by Mr Hokari's sister Yuki Hokari, to commemorate the life and achievements of Minoru Hokari.

Minoru Hokari (1971-2004) made outstanding contributions towards 'cross-culturalising' historical practice and towards developing a respectful collaborative research strategy with Indigenous Australians. A graduate of Hitotsubashi University and the ANU, Minoru conducted fieldwork amongst Gurindji elders. His untimely death in 2004 curtailed a very promising career. His colleagues and friends in the Australian Centre for Indigenous History within the School of History decided to establish a scholarship to him as a memorial.
