The Cocos (Keeling) Islands, part of Australia’s Indian Ocean Territories, have been home to a community of Malay Muslims since the islands were first populated in 1826.

This event brings together research on the community of the unique Cocos (Keeling) Islands from a range of disciplines addressing topics including cultural change, music, language, family, gift giving, migration, and diaspora, and includes a screening of the 1976 ABC documentary 'Kampong Katanning'.
