Summary "So often people ask for 8ways to be explained in 25 words or less, or to have a quick training session. But Aboriginal knowledge doesn't work like that. You need to read this book with patience. You have to take the time to engage as a related person belonging to a place. How can you do this if you're living in a virtual world with no connection to the land and no idea of who you are, beyond your consumer preferences and personality traits? So many teachers say, I don't have a culture, I'm just Australian. And apart from vague romantic notions of brumbies and billabongs, they don't really identify any of their knowledge as being connected to place or land. It's only when they dig a bit deeper and start engaging with our Indigenous ways of knowing that they find they have a rich culture, a valid connection to place in their own right. It is through this engagement with the ways of the Peoples and places in the land that they can forge strong, productive relationships with both their Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students." -- Rationale
Notes ""Whether you like it or not, culture is at the core of all thinking and learning. So if learning is your core business, then so is culture." (8ways wiki)" -- cover
"Based at the Bangamalanha Centre, Dubbo, the RAET team is responsible for the research and ongoing development of 8ways, management of the knowledge and observance of cultural protocols." -- page 1
