Sharing Aboriginal Voices

Sharing Aboriginal Voices is a place for me to share stories of our country’s past, and current history, from Aboriginal perspectives.    

Between 2009 and 2015 I worked at Bubup Wilam for Early Learning Aboriginal Child and Family Centre, a self-determining  Aboriginal Community, in the outer northern Melbourne suburb of Thomastown.

During that time,  as a non-Aboriginal early childhood educator, my beliefs, and ways of being, my knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal history and culture, my educational philosophy and ways of teaching, were challenged. Since then I have never stopped rethinking, revisiting, and searching for ways, as a non-Aboriginal woman, to hear Aboriginal stories and to walk in step with Aboriginal people.
