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.

Guyala “Lala” Bayles is a proud Birri Gubba and Wonnarua woman born on Yuggera country in South Brisbane where she currently resides with her partner and family.

Ever since she was a little girl, Lala always wanted to be a model to show the world just how beautiful Aboriginal people and culture really is.

Lala never gave up on her childhood dream and after years of unsuccessful auditions, trials and tribulations she signed an exclusive contract in 2018 with Chic Model Management alongside Samantha Harris and has since graced international catwalks as well as travelling the world shooting for designer labels, Netflix series, tv commercials,  catalogues, and house hold brand names.

Guyala is a model, poet, actor and artist who is extremely passionate about sharing her culture with the world.

“My inspiration comes from my Mum, Pop, Grand Mother’s and the Honourable Ancestors who paved the way for us”.
