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.

Episode 18 I yarn with Dart Johnson who joined BMD, a family owned construction company in late 2007 and in late 2015 was approached by the Business Development Manager who has great respect and empathy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and believed that the recently released Federal Indigenous Procurement Policy would be a positive catalyst for change which meant that BMD needed someone to facilitate and manage BMD’s Indigenous Program journey so in 2016 Dart became the National Indigenous Program Manager.
