Host Mundanara Bayles is guided by Aboriginal Terms of Reference which is the accumulated knowledge that Aboriginal people developed over the tens of thousands of years of living in this land, now known as Australia.

Relationships are at the core of Aboriginal Culture and Society and in our whole history of living in this country we never invaded our neighbours.

An Aboriginal Terms of Reference introduction is based on “Who you are and not what you do”, this way of introduction has been practiced by Aboriginal people since the first sunrise. From an Aboriginal perspective this way of introduction reinforces our humaness, we are much more than our job titles.

In episode 37 of the Black Magic Woman Podcast I yarn with Aunty Diane Kerr who is a respected Elder, of the Ganun Willam Balak Clan of the Wurundjeri Tribe. Aunty Di is the matriarch of her family and takes pride in being a mother, stepmother, foster mother, aunty and a grandmother.

Aunty Di has devoted much of her life to her local community as both a mentor and foster carer. She has worked in various fields including child care, education, native title, Stolen Generation support, and other community work, however, her passion lies in the social and emotional wellbeing of Aboriginal communities.
