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 31 of the Black Magic Woman Podcast I yarn with Florence Drummond a Dauareb/Wuthathi woman who was born and raised on Thursday Island in the Torres Straits.  As co-founder of Indigenous Women in Mining and Resources Australia (IWIMRA) and a Mine Operator, Florence understands from a grass roots level, the relationship of community and stakeholder relations and their shared vision for a sustainable future.
