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 74 is here! I yarn with the deadly brother, Luke Briscoe. Luke is a proud Kuku-Yalanji man from Daintree in Far Northern Australia and for the past twenty years he has been leading cultural change and organizational transformation across numerous sectors.

Luke is an Indigenous Science Educator, Broadcaster and App Developer, he is the CEO and Founder of an award-winning startup, INDIGI LAB. He founded INDIGI LAB to create innovative solutions for social and environmental change through digital culture and he uses his platform to advocate for Indigenous and Environmental Rights. His vision for a sustainable world is one that places First Nations Science and Innovation at the forefront of providing positive solutions to the vast Environmental, Cultural, and Social issues facing Humanity.

The INDIGI LAB framework and principles into researching and project planning is guided by the United Nation Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and The Seventh Generation Principle. We believe that these frameworks support real sustainable approaches to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander advancement in sciences and technology.

Our yarn was amazing, and we connect on so many different levels. A really deadly interview not to be missed. To give you a taste,  I’ll leave you with this quote from Luke –

“Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honour your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen… yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.” – Luke Briscoe
