This paper focuses on how the teaching and learning of Indigenous issues can be incorporated into the Criminal law and Procedure curricula. It argues that incorporation should be framed around themes of historical dispossession and legal recognition. This paper address how teachers can include Indigenous perspectives across the topics without rewriting the whole course. Rather by addressing issues relating to distinct Indigenous criminal laws and procedures and problems of Indigenous over-representation in the criminal justice system, the Priestley 11 requirements can be met. Therefore, the article is both intended to shed light on thematic approaches to teaching Indigenous crime issues and redesigning aspects of the criminal law/procedure curriculum without a complete overhaul.
