This paper introduces Indigenist Critical Policy Analysis (ICPA), an adapation of Critical Tiriti Analysis for the Australian context. It takes the five-stage approach but adapts it with different assessment indicators relevant to Phases 2 and 3. The indicators were developed based on an assessment of the core principles of CTA in relation to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. This paper then demonstrates the usefulness of ICPA with a case study – the NSW Regional Health Strategic Plan.
