IndigenousX: follow @IndigenousX on Twitter and view online content at

Our vision is to create a media landscape where Indigenous people can share their knowledge, opinions and experiences with a wide audience across the world.

The rotating @IndigenousX twitter account was launched on the 15th of March 2012. Since then it has risen to more than 43,000 followers, and over 300 Indigenous hosts on the account have shared thousands of stories, facts, reports, pictures, and laughs with an ever increasing audience. We pride ourselves on an ethic of respect for Indigenous knowledge, successfully providing an autonomous media service.

We’ve had actors, activists, authors, academics, politicians, teachers, doctors, uni students, and countless others around the country who have given their time to share their stories, experiences and perspectives.

IndigenousX  actively challenges stereotypes of the Indigenous community. Utilising the opportunities of the emerging digital ecosystem, our hosts become publishers, distributors and creators of news and information.
