CMIS was set up in 2004 to coordinate research by various multi-disciplinary researchers and supports activism on issues affecting indigenous people.

In December 2018, CMIS launched a HUB to bridge UM academics with NGOs, activists and artisans coming from various backgrounds through seminars, workshops and cultural events. CMIS also launches collaborations with international researchers on projects addressing indigenous people in Malaysia and comparative studies with indigenous people from other countries.
