Show Notes

Munya Andrews is an Indigenous woman from the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Born to an Aboriginal woman and Scottish father, she is proud of her Aboriginal and Celtic heritage. Her Bardi 'saltwater' people come from the Dampier Peninsula and the offshore islands north of Broome.

Regarded by Melbourne University as a "leading Australian thinker," Munya is an accomplished author and barrister with degrees in anthropology and law. Educated in Australia and the United States, she is fascinated by comparative religions, languages, mythology and science, and is intrigued by the way in which they interact and inform each other.

Munya's book, Journey into Dreamtime, is an easy guide to Aboriginal spirituality that explains Dreamtime concepts in a simple way. Munya's life purpose is to create better understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal people, leaving behind a legacy of Dreamtime wisdom for generations to come.

Munya's long term vision is to create a fairer, more inclusive Australian society, which recognizes and pays respect to its First Nations people.
