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 38 of the Black Magic Woman Podcast I yarn with Gaja Kerry Charlton an elder of the Go’enpul Tribe of Yuggera country which starts south west from the Great Dividing Range down to Logan River up to the Pine river and east to Moreton Bay.
