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.

It’s episode 149 and I’m back on Whadjak Noongar Country yarning with Professor Pat Dudgeon!! Aunt Pat is from the Bardi people of the Kimberly area in Western Australia and is a Research Fellow at the School of Indigenous Studies at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth, Western Australia.
