Firstly I am an Ngarrindjeri woman from South Australia, a Mother and Grandmother.

I am older but not quite Elder.

At very young age I have learnt how to walk in two worlds, having a Catholic education and not being able to express my own cultural values and beliefs as a child at school.

Growing up for me was going to school each day and learning in a foreign non Aboriginal way, then to return home at night to live as an Aboriginal person culturally safe in the comfort of my mother's loving arms.

I have spent thirty years working in various job roles in Government, and non Government organizations. I believe that I am a true advocate for Aboriginal people that are marginalized by a system that is far removed beyond our control.

Simply Engage Me is a reference book for non Aboriginal people to enable them to have better working relationships with Aboriginal people, as a colleague and or client. I have written this book in two sections, part one set of questions and answers that have been presented to me in the work place over thirty years by non Aboriginal staff and part two is about specifically engaging your Aboriginal client.

My purpose here is to stop all the questions by creating a simple to read questions and answers book for people who really do want to engage in a safe and cultural way working towards Reconciliation with Aboriginal People of Australia.

My main focus for this book is to give an overview of answers to some questions but not all, as no one Aboriginal person has the expert answer to every problem. In saying this it has been an expectation for us and a challenge in the workplace.My book does not contain any ceremonial or sacred answers, it is merely about engaging with Aboriginal people to bring about best practise and achieve greater outcomes for my people and to help break part of the cycle in being marginalized by misunderstanding.

I have had consult with other Aboriginal women from different parts of Australia and in South Australia in order to compile the different experiences they have had as workers and clients.

This book is a guide only to some of the many questions and answers that you may be seeking. For further information to your relevant community that you work in please seek council with the Elders and or a cultural broker for that particular area.
