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.

On episode 55 of the podcast, I yarn with the deadly Dr Mark McMillan, a Wiradjuri man from Trangie in central west New South Wales. With a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, a Master of Law and a doctorate in Juridical Science, Dr Mark McMillan was the first Indigenous person to be appointed to senior lecturer at the University of Melbourne’s Law School.

He is a passionate leader of Indigenous engagement and education and has many year’s experience in public administration and governance in Higher Education. We yarn about many things including how he now takes those skills of leadership and management into the private sector as an Indigenous entrepreneur as the CEO of Uncle Charlies Tastes of Country – Indigenous gourmet snack food. A really great yarn not to be missed!
