It’s episode 149 and I’m back on Whadjak Noongar Country yarning with Professor Pat Dudgeon!! Aunt Pat is from the Bardi people of the Kimberly area in Western Australia and is a Research Fellow at the School of Indigenous Studies at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth, Western Australia.

Her research is concerned with community engagement, consultation, and responsiveness, and draws upon multi-disciplinary approaches. Her large, national integrated projects map social phenomena and seek to implement transformative methods and practices focused on Indigenous health and wellbeing. 

It was such an honour to finally have Prof Pat Dudgeon on the show.
