#104 Engaging with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives (with Jessica Staines)

Valuing Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures is one of the guiding principles of the National Quality Framework. However, engaging with Indigenous perspectives can be a daunting prospect for many services. Why is it so important for educators and services to understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being? Where can they start? And what does the work in the first five years mean for broader advocacy? This episode, we're joined by Jessica Staines from the Koori Curriculum to tackle these big questions.
