My family and cultural links are from South-West Queensland, which is the top end of the Kamilaroi Nation. I have worked within a range of roles within the Queensland Education Department for a period of 21 years – these roles have included Primary Teacher, Secondary Guidance Officer, Administration, Policy and Curriculum Development. In 2002 I established Dhinawun Consultancy to provide educational consultancy activities including curriculum development, Aboriginal language and cultural studies programs, professional development for school staff as well as school-community partnerships. Currently I am employed as the Indigenous Languages Coordinator for the State Library of Queensland to coordinate and support activities under the State Library’s Indigenous Languages Strategy. This work entails researching the State Library Collections for language materials as well as conducting research/training workshops to enhance capacity of community to manage their language revival. 2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages and I am supporting State Library’s offer for the year which includes exhibitions and programming to raise awareness of Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.
